Welfare and safety
Your welfare and safety are very important to us. We have a 24-hour number for contact for urgent matters, which students or their parents can access - we ask you to send a text/SMS and we will reply within minutes. You will be helped to get to class on your first day. Winchester is small, so after that you will walk to school, maybe with other students living near you. We have a full-time Course Leader, who is responsible for looking after all students and if you have any problem, all you need to do is speak to your teacher or the Course Leader.
All of our taxi drivers (used for airport transfers) are known to us and have police checks. Their cars are fully insured. You must wear a seat belt when travelling in taxis or on coaches when on excursions. If you have any medical problem during your stay, you are covered as an EU citizen. We will make sure you get the medical attention you need. We keep basic First Aid supplies at the teaching centres.
We will do everything to make sure you are safe and happy during your stay.
