For Your Information

  • 1 teacher comes free for every complete group of 8 students (sometimes less)
  • 10% deposit confirms the booking – we hold an initial booking provisionally for one month.
  • 1 half price place is available, for children of accompanying teachers for every 15 students brought – but 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!
  • We can book hostels to extend the stay in the UK, but must be paid for at the time of booking (exact price + £20 fee/group)
  • 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 wanting to study – and 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.
  • Full groups booked and 50% paid for by Dec 31st can have a choice of 1 extra free place OR £5 less (excluding Open courses) for all students booked in by that date. 
  • Sunday is family day.
  • Stonehenge and Tintagel can only now be booked by the visiting school itself  – the school must be a bone fide State or private school, not a language school – and 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.
