Homestay accommodation for Juniors

Homestay providers are carefully chosen for their warm hospitality and friendliness. They are inspected regularly.

Remember you are staying in a different country where the food, water and climate will be different from your own. Please don’t expect the same food, lifestyle and conditions that you have in your own homes!

  • Students usually share a room with another Concorde International student of a different nationality, unless we have a request for friends to stay together. This will be confirmed when you book, and is subject to availability.
  • Breakfast and evening meals are taken at home. A packed lunch will be provided and generally consists of a sandwich or roll, a piece of fruit, a cake or biscuit, a packet of crisps and a fruit drink. Some centres offer (for a supplement) offer a hot lunch in school.
  • Bed linen and towels are provided by the Homestay. The Homestay will also wash small items such as underwear and sports clothes, and this can be arranged on arrival.
  • Many homes are within walking distance of the school. In some locations, a bus ride is required.
  • If you have pre-booked bus passes, the Homestay Organiser will give them to you on arrival.
  • When you arrive, you will be given an ID card with your homestay address and phone number and the School where you are studying, and the Homestay Organiser’s telephone number, in case you have any problems (lost keys, sickness)

Please be aware of the following basic rules when you are staying as a guest in homestay accommodation:

  • Always be on time for meals
  • Make an effort to talk to your family to practise your English
  • Do not smoke in the house
  • Always come back home before your curfew time in the evening
  • Always offer to clear your plate at the dinner table
  • Always wear your ID badge when you are away from the house
  • Always keep your room tidy
  • Ask your Homestay host about laundry and using the telephone
  • Always say “Please” and “Thank you”
  • Remember to stay in touch with your Homestay host when you are back in your own country, this will help you to practise your English after the trip!

Rooms are allocated according to special requests, age, male/female and nationality. Sometimes Homestay accommodation needs to be changed due to illness or personal circumstances. If we do need to change your accommodation, we will inform you as soon as possible and arrange transport if necessary.

UK entry advice

If you are travelling on a European passport and are concerned about entry into the UK, the British Government has published its guidance:

There will be no change to the rights and status of EU citizens currently living in the UK until 30 June 2021, or 31 December 2020 if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.

The arrangements described here will also apply to citizens of Switzerland arriving after exit in a no deal scenario.

After the UK leaves the EU, if there is no Brexit deal, EEA citizens will be able to enter the UK as they do now (for an interim period).

Guidance as of 28 January 2019

Please check your own Government advice before you travel.
