As well as our bright, comfortable classrooms, this school also provides students with a library and study centre, computer room, large dining hall, piano and indoor table tennis.

Students can also buy hot and cold drinks as well as snacks from the vending machines, and enjoy the 10-hectare garden with football pitches and tennis/basketball/badminton courts. Then share their experience with their friends using the free Wi-Fi available. 


Shared Homestay

With our homestay hosts, students will have the opportunity to experience British family culture. With Britain being a diverse and multiethnic society, you may experience more than one culture in a single household. You will have the opportunity to try out the food served by that household and practice your English with the family. Each week, towels and bedding are changed, laundry wash is provided as well as cleaning.



Located on the top floor of the school building, this accommodation option allows students to make friends and sleep in the same building where Her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth II once stayed at. Most bedrooms have four or five beds, but we also have two very large rooms that have up to 12 beds. The bathroom facilities are shared. Students will also have access to washing facilities and bathrooms on a daily basis. Fresh linen will be provided, but please bring your own towel.

Students should remember to bring an adaptor (Europe to UK/Ireland) for all their electronic/charging needs.

These excursions enable students to explore a wider reach of the UK and experience British culture on a greater scale. We encourage students to practise their English by talking to the new friends they have made on the programme as well as staff and people they meet on their travels.
