Why choose Barnes Host Families?

As former teachers Barnes has special relationships with many schools and colleges who are happy to integrate a small number of students from abroad each year, so that students spend most of their exchange year in Britain with new local friends. For private schools Barnes recommends schools attended by mainly British students.

After understanding each student's needs, they are given a choice of suitable schools. The Barnes family prepares each student individually, knows everybody involved in the arrangement and is available in Britain should assistance be required during your exchange year in Britain. Plus, we have a local representative caring for students in around each school in either England or Wales.

The Barnes family has been supporting schools, host families and students since 1975.

We provide an unlimited consultation service to ensure you make the right decision before committing to a study programme. After understanding your individual needs we offer a choice of schools to choose from for your exchange year in Britain.

For most of our programmes for studying in the UK you only need to make a commitment when you are happy with an offer from your chosen school.
