Here is a little more about the highly successful English Language Homestays.

The students study at the School in the Civic Centre and stay with host families in Shoreham town and Shoreham Beach. During 2014 over 18,000 bed nights have been placed in Sussex by ELH.

What we do


Summer school

Shoreham residents will be most familiar seeing International students in Shoreham on our Summer Schools. Children from 10 to 17 years old have the opportunity to take a programme of English lessons and fun activities throughout the Summer.


Short stays

In addition to the hugely popular Summer School programmes we offer Short Stays to School Groups throughout the year.


1-2-1 English courses

We also offer adults and young learners the opportunity to learn English on a 1-2-1 basis with a tutor while staying in the tutors home. This year we also introduced the chance to learn English via Skype too.


Would you like to get involved - host families / tutors

We are always looking out for new host families in the Shoreham and Sussex area and so if you would like to earn some income by accommodating students then please get in touch.

Similarly we are also looking for more homestay tutors in Shoreham and Sussex. If you are interested in teaching English as a foreign language then we run regular courses to help you get started.

Jackie Verrall, Managing Director of English Language Homestays, comments:

"As a local Shoreham business we are delighted to be supporting such a great local community event.

We have so many host families based in the town centre, Shoreham Beach and through to Lancing, as well as working with so many local businesses, we thought that supporting this local event was a great way to thank the community for its continued support towards our students and business"
