LSI works with homestay hosts throughout London (zones 2-6) but most standard homestay accommodation is in zones 3 and 4, with the majority of executive homestays in zones 2 and 3. The key factor in selecting homestays is the travel time to the schools, which can mean homing students in the outer zones (4 -5) which have excellent transport links. At London Hampstead we also have a small number of homestay hosts within walking distance of the school.
All our homestays have central heating and many are carpeted to provide additional warmth and comfort. Whilst we have a wide range of families from different cultural backgrounds and age groups, the majority of hosts are in the 30-40 age range, often with young families and pets, or are retired. Our homestays are located in safe, residential areas and are split evenly between apartments and houses, with most homestay houses having a garden which the students have access to.
