Summer Family Programme 

We welcome the whole family to study at our school in the summer and we run bespoke courses for you and your children.


We offer the choice of two family packages:

1. The Family Homestay package

2. The Family Cottage package



1. Family Homestay Package 

Key facts:

  • Homestays in Totnes or in surrounding villages – in the latter instance, hosts bring you and your children in and out of Totnes to school every day.

  • Suitable for a ‘family’ of 2 people, a parent and a child. 

  • Usually shared or a combination of single and shared rooms.

  • Homestay provides breakfast and an evening meal for the adults and young learners (11*-17-year olds). The young learner students have canteen lunch at the school during the week and the host family provides them with packed lunch on the weekends. *For students under 11 years old, we can offer 1:1 classes. Please ask us for details.


The homestay hosts welcome you and your family into their homes and you are encouraged to join them for meals and in the evenings, watching TV or sitting in the garden if the weather is nice. The kitchen is the family’s domain so do offer to help, but be sensitive!

This is a wonderful way of making friends, getting to know about local events and entering in to the local life of the different communities- not to mention helping your English!
