Families are usually within 40 minutes travel time from school on foot or by public transport, and within an approximate distance of two miles. A weekly travel ticket for buses in Eastbourne costs £15. 

Students that are aged under 18 stay with local host families. 

Our Accommodation officer visits all our homestay providers regularly to make sure that they meet our own standards and comply with British Council guidelines.

Residential Accommodation

Residential in Eastbourne (for students aged 10-17)

Located on the first and top floors of the school building, as well as a stand alone building in the courtyard,  this accommodation option allows young learners to make friends and sleep in the same building where Her Late Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth II once stayed at. Most bedrooms have four or five beds, but we also have two very large rooms that have up to 12 beds. The bathroom facilities are shared. Group leaders will have single/twin rooms, and private bathrooms.

Students will also have access to washing facilities and bathrooms on a daily basis. Bathrooms are cleaned daily. Fresh linen will be provided, and changed weekly, but please bring your own towel. There are also onsite laundry facilities if students require it. This is coin operated, and must be used under supervision of a Twin member of staff or group leader. Our residence also boasts vending machines for cold drinks and snacks, a common room, sports hall, outside tennis courts and football pitch.

Students should remember to bring an adaptor (Europe to UK/Ireland) for all their electronic/charging needs.
