About Bournemouth

Bournemouth is located on the southern coast of England and enjoys a mild climate. With seven miles of golden sands and sparkling sea, only a short walk from the school, this vibrant cosmopolitan town has it all. Bournemouth is famous for its entertainment venues, educational and sports facilities, and its restful atmosphere. Founded in 1800, the town has grown into a resort which is characterised by its wide, tree-lined avenues and pedestrian areas. Victorian architecture is complemented by beautiful gardens, modern stores, cafes, and eateries. Visitors are sure to enjoy loads of memorable experiences.

About our partner schools

We carefully select our partner secondary schools according to student feedback and performance. All our partner schools have achieved good or excellent Ofsted results and offer a friendly environment which fosters learning and promotes student integration.

Lessons

The use of uniform is compulsory in English Secondary Schools so students are responsible for their own kits and will not be able to attend school without them. Students have to adhere to the code of conduct of the school they will be attending and will be subject to disciplinary procedures in the same manner as an English student would. School information along with its procedures and students' expectations will be sent to international students upon school allocation.

Level of English

Students are expected to have a minimum B1 level in order to fully enjoy the programme.

Accommodation

All students will stay in one of our premium host families where they will have the opportunity to learn about British culture and customs.

Homestay Accommodation

Staying with a family is probably the best way to practise your English and learn more about the British way of life. Bournemouth is a city of many cultures and this is reflected in the homestays we use. Families are carefully selected for their friendliness, cleanliness and access to and from the school. Host family homes are regularly inspected and most of our families are located within 20-45 minutes away from school by public transport. The family will provide all the necessary assistance.

  • Single/shared room for students of the same sex
