Students don't need to return home during school breaks.
Instead, they could enjoy a holiday trip with other students!
It's not always possible for children to go home at weekends when boarding schools close, during half terms holidays, or over the longer Christmas or Easter holidays.
The Academic Families Guardianship programme fully supports students with all the local support required during term time. And, for those times when a child can't come home, we also offer a host family for them to stay with, or a fun activity and cultural group trip.
For those students who would benefit from some extra academic support, we can also offer English or exam revision courses.
Three times a year, we take students on holidays during school breaks in October, February and May.
Most children join all three trips, and sometimes we even have enough space for their friends to come along too!

Accommodation will be in purpose-built wood and stone chalets following the Alpine tradition. Girls and boys are accommodated separately.
