Host Family

Host Family accommodation is becoming popular and widely sought after by visitors from abroad. Every year, we place hundreds of students into host family accommodation. 

Staying with a ‘British’ host family provides new visitors to the UK with an excellent opportunity to be fully immersed in an English-speaking environment as well as experience the British lifestyle and culture. This allows students to enrich their understanding, learn local expressions and develop the confidence to speak with greater ease and a more authentic accent.

Relationships formed during their stay with a host family may last a lifetime. Students will have the support they need to ensure they adjust to the UK and become familiar with local people and are integrated into the local community.

Our host families are provided with strict guidelines, some of which are:

  • To provide a warm and friendly welcome
  • English must be main language spoken
  • The communal areas must be clean and maintained at all times
  • The room(s) provided must be clean, comfortable, well lit with natural light, have a bed, sufficient heating, ventilation, storage for clothes and use of a table or desk
  • Bed linen and towels are provided and changed weekly
  • A maximum of two guests per room and four guest in the whole house, subject to size and space
  • Regular access to the bathroom as per a member of the family
  • Assistance to find his or her way to school on their first day

Our Host Families provide students with both short and long term accommodation and accommodate both younger (that have purchased our guardianship package) and older students. For younger students the host family will provide full board during weekend breaks, half-term and other holiday periods and half board when the student is not present during the day. Older students have the option of both 'bed and breakfast' and half board.

James-Lee Consultancy has a wide variety of host families available. This means that we can match the student’s requirements to a host family and ensure the best possible match.
