Regions

In our England high school program, you can be placed in different counties in England and Wales. In order for you to experience England as authentically as possible, we tend to place our students in smaller towns. Please understand that your placement also depends on your age, your chosen length of stay and the availability of host families! Nevertheless, we and our English partners try to fulfill your wishes as best as possible.

Your Host Family

“It’s teatime my dear”- you are probably going to hear this phrase a lot if you are part of an English family. In England, it is a well-known tradition to have a cup of tea and biscuits altogether around 4 p.m. in the afternoon. This is certainly just one of the many cultural traditions, that you will get to know very quickly while you stay in your new town.

Your host family can’t wait to show you their country and their culture. This way you are going to learn the “British English” very quickly and easily.

Your School in England

During your high school exchange in England you will attend a public school. The good reputation of the British school system and the desire to learn British English or to get a degree here attract young people from all over the world to England.

Classes at English high schools usually take place daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Afterwards, numerous extracurricular activities await you, such as Cricket, theater, music, chess, choir, painting, or photography.

The school year consists of trimesters, so you have the option to spend one term, one semester, two terms or an entire school year here.
