Accommodation & Welfare at Moira House
Traditional British Residence
Students are accommodated in comfortable dormitories of mainly two to five beds with shared showers and toilets. There are plenty of shower rooms and toilets available and all are clean and well maintained. 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 watch TV/DVDs, listen to music, play board games, etc. This is usually the place where children relax with a hot chocolate drink before bedtime. Our professional and experienced staff are residential within the boarding houses to ensure safety and 24 hour supervision.
There is a good choice of healthy and balanced meals served at mealtimes, including English and international. There is always a vegetarian option on the menu, as well as fresh fruit and various salads. Staff always eat their meals with the students which encourages English conversation. Snacks and drinks are also available at break times and during the evenings.
Students’ personal laundry is done at least once a week and is included in the course fee.
ACCORD ISS First-Aid staff are on site at all times and any medical problems can be dealt with at the local Doctor’s surgery in Eastbourne. There is an excellent hospital in Eastbourne 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.
