Why choose Barnes Host Families?

As former teachers Barnes has special relationships with many state high schools and only places around six international students into each school, so that students spend most of their exchange year in England with English friends. For private schools in England Barnes recommends schools attended by mainly English students.

Each student is normally given a choice of suitable schools to choose from after we understand their individual needs. The Barnes family prepares each student individually, knows everybody involved in the arrangement and is available in England should assistance be required during your exchange year in England.

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 England.

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.
