Homestay students are accommodated with our carefully selected host families and are enrolled in a local day school which can either by public or private as requested. All our host families are visited by an LLI representative and are chosen because of their suitability to host an academic year student. Host families are warm and welcoming and treat the student as they would their own family member Host families live within walking distance or a short journey by public transport from the selected High School. The student has breakfast and dinner with the host family and they are provided with a packed lunch. During the weekend all meals are with the host family.
Boarding school accommodation
Students who choose to attend boarding school are generally accommodated in dormitories which are shared with their fellow students. Many schools have small two or four bedded rooms with bathroom facilities and some final year students have single rooms. Students have all their meals in the school cafeteria and there is generally a tuck shop where snacks can be purchased. Boarding allows the student to take part in a range of sporting and recreational activities in a caring supportive community comprised of fellow students, teachers and house parents. Many boarding schools are 5 day boarding and the student lives with a carefully selected host family at the weekend returning to school on Sunday evening. Some schools offer 7 day boarding and this should be requested if desired when making the application.
