Scottish families are famous for their generous hospitality and homestay accommodation is a perfect opportunity to experience this first hand. Staying in a homestay allows students to relax in a friendly, local home and to continue practising English in a natural setting.

Homestay families are part of the school community and are regularly visited by the Accommodation and Welfare Officer to ensure students receive the best hospitality during their stay.

The homestay accommodation includes:

  • Single room accommodation
  • Bed, breakfast and evening meal with your hosts every day
  • No other student who speaks the same language in the home
  • Private bathrooms are available on request
