Kensington Academy


Homestay accommodation can be an excellent way to improve your language while in the UK. You live with a host, eat meals with them and speak English. As well as being able to practise the language, it is a great way to experience British culture. It’s a popular option for students aged 16-18. There will be no more than three other students (or other paying guests) staying with you at the same homestay.
