Teaching English in London since 1928


  • Homestay accommodation is of a very high standard and is with a local English-speaking family.
  • Most families are located between 5 and 20 minutes on foot.
  • Some families live further away but most can bring and collect the students from school.
  • For students under 18, families will bring and collect the students every day.
  • We inspect all the host families ourselves and obtain police checks.
  • We do not place students of the same first language together unless they ask.
  • A maximum of four students can stay in one family.
  • All our families speak English to native level and will speak English with you as much as possible.
  • We have been working with many of our families for many years.
  • We do not use families who get negative feedback from students.
  • There are also several bed and breaksfasts, hotels and self-catering accommodation nearby.
  • We also organise ministays.
