Student houses and Studio Rooms
We offer a range of Student Houses and Studio rooms in London Zone 2. Please contact us for our latest options and availability.
Our homestay accommodation is selected after careful inspection by our Accommodation Officer or our partner accommodation agencies and chosen for the warmth of their welcome rather than their proximity to the schools. They are situated in residential areas of London. Travel time to school is usually minimum 30 minutes. We try not to place students more than 60 minutes' journey from the school. Homestay hosts reflect the multicultural aspect of Britain in general and London in particular. They are British citizens and can be from any country or ethnic background, of any age, single people living alone, and families with or without children. English is the main language used in the home.
It is essential that you inform us of any special requests for your homestay (allergies, diet, pets) at the time of booking and we will do our best to match your requirements.
Choose between Half Board (breakfast and evening meal provided), Private Home (breakfast is provided) and Self-Catering (no meals are provided but you will have access to the kitchen).

Activities during the week focus on helping the students discover why London is one of the most exciting places in the world and include theatre trips, pubs, restaurants, South Bank and visits to the huge range of museums and galleries London has to offer. There is no school charge for any social programme event but students must pay for their own travel and any entrance fees.
