Our partner schools
Our partner schools are all situated in the area in which we ourselves are based: Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire. We know all of the schools we work with from personal visits and frequent communication. All of the schools have achieved grades of GOOD our OUTSTANDING in official inspections conducted by the the Government's OFSTED inspectors.
We only work with State (government) schools. We do not place students in private schools. Placements in private schools are generally more expensive and accommodation is residential. We think that from a welfare point of view and for maximum English language improvement it's better to stay with a local host family.
Before a student joins a school, we work closely with it to provide information about the student (both personal and academic) and to arrange registration.
We promise our partner schools that students we send to them will study hard and help with language learning. We also make a financial contribution to the school.
Examples of schools
Here are a few of the schools we work with.
Please note that by listing these schools we are not stating that students can automatically be placed in them, as this is a matter of negotiation student-by-student. We will offer students the best school willing to take them at any given time, for any particular year group.

Here is some of the feedback we have received from our partner schools about our Schools Year Abroad Students
Lorenzo has been a superb member of our tutor group. He is always punctual, courteous and polite. Lorenzo has made a considerable effort to speak good English and converse with me during tutor time using a variety of vocabulary. He is clearly a very driven and motivated student who has repeatedly impressed with both his attitude towards his studies and the quality of work he produces. I have thoroughly enjoyed having Lorenzo in the tutor group and I wish him every success for the future. The Thomas Hardye School, Dorchester
Claudia has been a cheerful, productive and enthusiastic member of Sixth Form during her time here; I wish she could stay. She has integrated really well and become popular among her peers and with the staff who have taught her. Personally, I have been impressed by her maturity and self-possession; she has taken advantage of every opportunity put her way and made the most of her experience. We will all miss her and wish her well. Beaminster School
Very happy to take on more of your students - your girls this year have been fantastic! The Burgate School, Fordingbridge
What a pleasure Ludo has been at the college. He has fitted in really well and is making some good friends. Bitterne Park Sixth Form
