Christmas 2020

We are now all thinking ahead to Christmas and if children will be able to return home. If returning home then quarantine will be required and not all schools are providing this - we can help.  If unable to fly home, then we can offer several great options for a British Christmas.  There is limited availability for all options - quarantine, family hosting and residential programmes - so please confirm your requirements as soon as you can.

Quarantine will be in a room at a host with all meals but no activities.

Hosting will be joining a family for their Christmas celebration with informal family based activities and all meals. Online subject tuition is available.

English Tuition Hosting will be as Hosting but with an agreed timetable of English tuition.

Residential Programme will be in school or university accommodation with a full programme of fun Christmas activities and all meals and some revision for older students.

Transfers and pocket money are extras for all options and it would be nice to buy some gifts to exchange, especially if staying with a family.
