  • Host families carefully selected by the school team - all families are  inspected regularly and all adults in homestay accommodation for under 18 students are DBS checked

  • Professional, experienced and qualified supervisors for all outdoor adventure activities

  • Minimum of 1:15 supervision on all excursions and activities (1:6 for Kindergarten English and 1:8  for Play with  English)

  • 24 hour emergency phone number
