girls reading in their room


Here at St Andrew’s we try to be as flexible with our accommodation options as possible ranging from luxury ensuite bedrooms, single and double bedrooms to homestay options.  We want our students to feel like this is their home-from-home, where they can relax, enjoy time with their friends, have some privacy when required and learn to live with other like-minded students from across the world.  All our accommodation has free Wi-Fi.

All our accommodation is staffed by House Parents who look after the students on a day-to-day basis providing help and guidance with any questions they may have.  Our House Parents are extremely experienced in looking after young people, are DBS checked and are trained and qualified in food preparation, first aid, fire marshalling, allergens and child protection.  They are always around as a listening ear or for a cup of tea and chat.  As well as providing excellent care, our House Parents serve breakfast, take care of laundry and clean student’s room.  They help celebrate achievements, birthdays and religious events, organise events in the house and aim for all students to feel comfortable and secure in a caring family environment.
