Welcome to Westbourne Academy!


Why Westbourne Academy

Westbourne Academy Accommodation

Accommodation is an important part of the experience and involves living as a member of the home. Students are treated as a full member of the household, eating together and sharing the common living areas. It gives them the opportunity to practice their English and benefit from an English home atmosphere.

Some students prefer ‘Private Home Accommodation’. There may be less of a family environment as there can be more than 4 students in the home. Students will still experience eating together with the hosts and sharing the common living areas.

Living with local people is the best way to get extra language practice and it also helps you to understand British culture and customs. The safety and security of all our students is a priority. In the case of problems, there are several full-time welfare officers available to give advice and help. The school also operates a 24-hour emergency telephone service for students.
