Safety and responsibility

For all our juniors,  safety is our number one concern  (followed closely by  having fun and learning English, of course!).  It is  important  for us to be able  to offer parents complete peace of mind, and  we provide the following to this end:

  • 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 English in Action)

  • 24 hour emergency phone number

  • We use public transport as much as we can to protect our environment.  Where we do need to use a car or coach, we offset our carbon footprint through planting trees.
