Becoming a Homestay Host is very different from letting a room or providing B&B.
One can be eligible to become a Homestay Host regardless of whether you are a mother and father with a young family, a single mum with children or a retired couple. We do not discriminate provided one can agree to the terms and conditions of our contract.
All of our Homestay Host sign a contract and receive a visit annually from the Accommodation Manager. The inspection includes a Risk Assessment check to ensure that the standard safety requirements are adhered to and that the Homestay Host has up to date gas certification which is one of the requirements of our terms and conditions and a regulation that is imposed by the British Council. It is also an opportunity to touch base with the homestay, note any changes and air any issues.
Fees paid to a Homestay host are inclusive of:
• Provision of a single room
• Half board from Monday to Friday
• Full Board at Weekends
• Light laundry service
We expect our Homestay Host to include the students as much as possible in their homestay activities. We appreciate that this can sometimes be challenging with work commitments and demands from young family members. Our philosophy is simple. We all have to eat so why not make this a quality time for everyone in the household and eat together around a table and make it a time for quality conversation where the whole family, including the students, can feel nurtured on every level.
We do our best to foster a family atmosphere in the school with monthly breakfast club and weekly lunch club on top of an already amazing social programme. We would expect this to be an extension of the family atmosphere experienced by our students with their homestay host.
