Course Accommodation and Welfare

Host Family Accommodation

Severnvale has a dedicated Accommodation and Welfare Officer who personally recruits and regularly visits our host families. We take the welfare of the students that study with us very seriously and have rigorous recruitment processes in place.

The families provide all meals for the students, and are required to be present in the house when the students leave and return each day during the programme. Our Accommodation and Welfare Officer liaises closely with the hosts throughout the course.

Homestay Accommodation £195 per week

Dietary options (gluten free, dairy/ lactose free) £35 per week

In the event that any student requires help or assistance at any time, there is a 24/7 emergency helpline that is monitored by the  senior management team throughout the duration of the course.

Airport transfers

Severnvale can arrange airport transfers – prices are one way from/to the airport, but they can be shared by students who book their courses together.
Please note that for students under 16, £38 must be added to the transfer price to cover the driver waiting costs – by law the driver must stay at the airport until the plane has taken off.

Birmingham / Manchester / Liverpool airports: £95
Coventry / Nottingham East Midlands airport: £110
London Heathrow/Luton airports: £195
London Gatwick/Stansted/City/Central London: £225
