Accommodation & Welfare at Bethany
Study, relax, socialise
Students are accommodated in comfortable rooms of mainly two to four beds with shared showers and toilets. There are plenty of shower rooms and toilets available and all are clean and well maintained. There is also a number of single en-suite rooms available, these rooms are very popular so early booking is advised.
We make every effort to ensure that rooms are shared with children of different nationalities and of similar age so that they continue speaking English outside of the classroom and make new friends.Parents may request for their child to share with a particular friend(s) and this will be considered but cannot always be guaranteed.
There is a social room in each boarding house where children can relax watch TV/DVDs, play snooker, listen to music, etc. This is usually the place where students have their hot drink and snack before bedtime. Our ACCORD ISS experienced staff are residential within the boarding houses to ensure safety and 24 hour supervision.
The catering team serve a variety of healthy and balanced meals to cater for all tastes. Hot and cold food is served as well as fruit, salad and desserts. There is always a vegetarian option and special dietary requirements will be catered for. Snacks and drinks are also available at break times and during the evenings.
Students’ personal laundry is done at least once a week and included in the course fee.
First-Aid staff are on site at all times and any medical problems can be dealt with at the local Doctor’s surgery in Cranbrook. There is an excellent hospital in Tunbridge Wells for more serious cases and our staff always accompany students to the Doctor’s surgery or hospital.
Passports, tickets and pocket money must be handed in to the Course Director on arrival. These items will be locked securely away in the school safe. There is time allocated every day where students can collect pocket money from the Course Director, or other Senior member of staff.
Students of all creeds and cultures are welcomed as our aim is to create a summer school which can truly be described as International.
