A memorable half term

Staying with a host family offers and unparalleled opportunity for children to immerse themselves in a different culture, traditions and way of live, as well as enjoy some home comforts not available at school.

One of the most rewarding aspects of staying with a host family is the opportunity to build long lasting friendships. The bond between students and their host family goes beyond a holiday and can be a lifelong connection. The May half term offers a chance for students to discover treasures in their host family’s local community. From local festivals and unique attractions to traditional activities with their host family as an enthusiastic guide. These experiences create lasting memories for both the hosts and the students.
