Year Round & Mini Stay Programmes
With 26 destinations all available year round there are a wide variety of programmes available. Family accommodation is an integral part of these programmes. To ensure children are placed in a secure family environment our host families are carefully selected and monitored by our Local Organisers. Students will receive breakfast and evening meal with the family and will be provided with a packed lunch.
Mini Stays are organised in four categories
1. Accommodation only 2—7 Nights;
At any of our centres around Britain we can offer a 2 - 7 night stay with accommodation only. This programme is suitable for experienced group leaders and groups who are familiar with travel in Britain. Although this is a basic programme we offer free excursion planning and 24 hours support from our local organisers.
2. Accommodation and Excursions 2—7 Nights;
This programme offers a relaxing option to group leaders as we organise a full package, from accommodation to payment of entrances. Guided or escorted tours can be included to ensure that group leaders can themselves enjoy the experience as well as their pupils.

School Integration 5—7 Nights.
In a number of centres around Britain, we offer our "School Integration Programme". This is a year round programme, (term time only).
In addition to family accommodation and full cultural programme we offer the opportunity to experience life in a British school, sharing lessons and activities with British children in their classrooms.
To enable the students to make full use of their stay in Britain we offer 3 lessons of EFL by a British teacher in the mornings and full integration in the afternoons.
Group leaders can chose 2 - 3 day integration and excursions from an extensive list. Our major centres offering this programme are London, York and Brighton. However many other centres around Britain will be able to fulfil requests.
