For Your Information

  • 1 teacher comes free for every complete group of 8 students (can be less if the group is small).
  • A 10% deposit confirms the booking, we will hold an initial booking provisionally for one month whilst final estimated numbers are confirmed. That deposit payment must be received within 6 weeks of the initial booking.
  • 1 half price place is available, for children of accompanying teachers for every 15 students brought – but this does not count towards the number of teaching groups or free teacher places.
  • Safety and security of students are paramount. Evenings are with the families unless written responsibility is transferred to the visiting teacher.
  • We are open all year! The climate is moderate, and winters are mild – the Atlantic Ocean is just 10 km away!
  • Any accommodation or attraction bookings in London or elsewhere outside of the Devon programme needs to be done online directly by the lead teacher. We are happy to offer advice.
  • The price is inclusive – no hidden extras, other than any special visits or requests or bookings before or after leaving Devon.
  • Adults are welcome but only as full participants on the course, there is a small daily supplement to pay.
  • Full 8½ hour programme each day including fieldwork on visits, plus tasks with the family in the evening.
  • SOL is a small, friendly organisation and we treat everyone personally before, during and after the stay. 
  • Students are placed in friendly and supportive families, preferably with friends as they will speak more English this way. Normally this will mean 2/3 students together, in pressure periods this number may be exceeded if there are insufficient families.
  • Sunday is family day.
  • Stonehenge and Tintagel can only now be booked by the visiting school itself, the school must be a bona fide State or private school not a language school. This can only apply to WHOLE groups using their own coach or booked as an air group. It is not possible for any Open Course booking. We provide instructions and help with the booking and must be involved in agreeing dates and times.
  • If 50% of the total payment is made by December 31st of the previous year, there will be a discount of £10 per student.
