Live with an English Host Family

Living in a host family has many advantages. You will have the chance to practise your English throughout your stay and to make friends with English people. We place our students with carefully selected host families who are friendly and caring and offer a comfortable home. Our host families all live close to the school, and range from families with children to retired couples. During the summer months, your host family may be a little further away, but you will still be able to walk to school.

We will find the right family for you (see below) and will look closely at your special requests. It is important that you tell us on your enrolment form whether you have to have a special diet, a medical condition or any allergies . It is also helpful to know whether you like children or pets.

Host Families: Quality and Safety

Host families are at the heart of any students stay at London House School of English. They are the people we trust to look after our students when they are not at school. To ensure we make the right choice of host families, London House carries out checks to ensure that all the accommodation we provide is both safe and offers the highest standard of care.

Checks carried out by London House include:

  1. DBS Police Checks to ensure all key adults are suitable to work with under 18's
  2. All adults must sign a declaration of suitability
  3. Fire Safety Checks to ensure all homes have Risk Assessments and have made their homes safe including; Smoke Alarms and CO2 Detectors
  4. Gas and Electrical Certificates
  5. Initial inspections and regular visits from our welfare staff
  6. Feedback forms given to all students to help identify any issues

In addition to these checks, London House School of English has a dedicated welfare officer that students, groups leaders and parents may contact if they have any problems or questions relating to our home stay arrangements.
