My stay at the Lake School was amazing. The lessons were all great. I learned a lot and we had fun as well, the perfect combination. They matched exactly my level and helped me improve my English.

Homestay Accommodation

Your accommodation is booked from the Sunday before your course starts to the Saturday after your course finishes. This means that you check in to your homestay on Sunday and check out on Saturday.

If you arrive in Oxford or leave Oxford on different days, you are responsible for arranging your own extra nights’ accommodation. It may be possible to stay for an extra night in your homestay. There is an extra charge for this. Please contact the school to check availability. 

Hosts cannot accept students between 23.00 and 07.00. If you are arriving in Oxford late, please make alternative arrangements to stay in a hotel.

If you choose to pay your accommodation yourself, you should pay on arrival and then every two weeks in advance. If you want to leave your accommodation before the date booked, you must tell your homestay and the Lake School, at least one week in advance.

Occasionally, because of situations beyond our control, we may need to change your accommodation either before you arrive or when you are here. We promise to provide accommodation for the period you have booked but this may not be with the same host for the whole period.

If you decide take a holiday during your course, we may charge a room retainer fee or ask you to change to different accommodation when you return. Please ask the school for details before booking your holiday.

Hotel or Self-Catering Accommodation

Some students prefer to stay in hotel or self-catering accommodation. The Lake School doesn't arrange this, however we can give you advice and make suggestions if you want to book your own own hotel or self-catering accommodation in Oxford. 

This accommodation is only recommended for students aged 18+.
