“To live with a Spanish family is to be totally immersed in the culture and lifestyle of the country, a unique and enriching experience not to be missed”
Our host families live in residential areas near Caxton College, as well as in other nearby towns and villages and in the city of Valencia. We endeavour to assign families according to the students’ requirements and preferences.
During the first few weeks in Spain, students may find that that the lifestyle is different from what they are used to, and that they will need to adapt to different meals, habits, climate and customs. Living with a Spanish host family ensures that the student will receive support and help in adapting to the new surroundings and lifestyle.
Two types of homestay boarding options are offered:
Our aim is to make the boarders’ stay as pleasant as possible, ensuring that they are well looked after and integrated within the school and life in Valencia. The Boarding Admissions Officer holds regular meetings with students to check on their welfare and solve any problems that they may have. Host families are also asked to send regular reports on the progress of their boarder.
Communication with parents is one of our top priorities, and we value frequent contact. We send regular reports on their child’s progress in order to keep them informed.
Caxton College is committed to child protection and safeguarding children and young people and expects all staff, visitors and host family members to share this commitment.
We aim to:
Provide a trusting, supportive and mutual respectful environment for all pupils.
