You can choose from host family or residence accommodation at our school in Cambridge. In both of these accommodation options you will be provided with your breakfast, lunch and evening meal (lunch will be provided at the school, regardless of which accommodation type you are staying in), and a packed lunch for excursions.
If you stay in host family accommodation, you will share a room with another student. Host family accommodation is usually located within 30 minutes of the school by bus, bike or on foot. You will be expected to travel independently to school, although your hosts will certainly make sure that you know the best way to get there!
If you stay in residence accommodation, you can choose between single or shared room accommodation. This type of accommodation is usually located 5-15 minutes’ walk from the school, and 5-20 minutes from Cambridge City Centre. Members of the school staff will also be staying in the residence accommodation to make sure that you are safe. You will also be expected to travel to the school independently, although the school’s staff will make sure that you know the best way to get there!
All students will be fully supervised whilst they are at the school, on activities or on excursions. Students will also be supervised in their accommodation either by their host family or by wardens who also live in the residence. All students will be given some unsupervised free time (particularly on Sundays which are free days). All students will also be allowed to go out in the evenings, although they must return to their accommodation by 23.00, regardless of whether they are staying in host family or residence accommodation.
The school offers an extensive programme of activities, including sports, cultural visits and arts and crafts, with daytime activities arranged four times per week. Students staying in residence accommodation will also be offered evening activities every evening, whilst those staying with host families will be offered three evening activities per week. The school also arrange regular excursions to other places of interest in the United Kingdom, including amusement parks, London, Stratford-upon-Avon and Windsor Castle to name a few.
