Host Families

During exeat weekends and holidays, if your child cannot return home when the boarding school is closed, they will need to stay with a host family.
We place our students with specially selected host families who are known personally to us and have undergone all the necessary security checks for safeguarding. 

We take great care to ensure that each student is matched with a host family where they will feel at home and treated as a family member. We ask our host families to include our students in outings and activities and explain to students what to expect from their host families. We consider the relationships between the students and their host families to be a significant part of their life in the UK. Living with a family is a great way for overseas students to learn more about British culture and traditions and practise their conversational English skills.

We have a selection of very caring host families in Kent, Surrey, East & West Sussex, Hampshire, London, Oxfordshire and Yorkshire. Our host families take excellent care of our guardianship students attending schools nearby. 

How to become one of our host families
Our host families welcome students to their homes when the boarding schools are closed. 
They offer a secure and friendly home environment and are genuinely interested in our student's life. 
We are always looking out for people interested in acting as host families for students in our guardianship care, attending boarding schools in Kent, Surrey & Sussex.
If you are interested in this role, please get in touch with us by email at or by completing the online form. We will then contact you to arrange a visit to your home and answer any of your questions.
