Why Westbourne Academy

Westbourne Academy Accommodation

Westbourne Academy can arrange accommodation for students who take courses at the school. Most students choose homestay accommodation because it 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 practise their English and benefit from an English home atmosphere. Please note that we do not place more than four students in one homestay.

Some students prefer ‘Private Home Accommodation’. There may be less of a ‘family’ environment in these homes as there can be more than 4 students at the home. Students will still eat together with the hosts and share the common living areas. If you prefer to be placed in ‘Private Home Accommodation’ please let us know at the time of booking on the enrolment form.

All of our accommodation is selected based on their location which must be a direct bus journey from the school. This is approximately 20 minutes away from Westbourne Academy. We provide all our students with a map of where their accommodation is and their journey to the school before they arrive.

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 has a 24-hour emergency telephone service for students.
