Relax… try our Host Family alternative this Half term in Cambridge

With Half term just around the corner we are currently finalising places on our Relax & Revise Programme.

Half term holidays are a vital part of the boarding year, allowing students to stop, rest and reflect on what they have achieved so far at school. Host Family stay is the traditional offering to overseas students who do not wish to make the long journey home and are therefore seeking a safe and comfortable place to stay. Relax & Revise can offers a fun and unique alternative for international students studying at UK Boarding Schools.

Our unique programme operated by Cambridge Melchior College

The ever-popular Host Family alternative matches the closing and opening dates for Boarding Schools across the UK and gives overseas students the chance to unwind in the safe surroundings of Cambridge Melchior College.

“I prefer Relax & Revise to a host family. There is less pressure and more freedom to do what I want when we want.”

Bissai, Bright World Relax & Revise student

Students applying to Relax & Revise do not have to be enrolled onto Bright World’s guardianship programme as we welcome all international students.

A fun programme of activities and excursions

A fun and exciting programme of activities awaits our students as they prepare for the short school holiday. A full day excursion to the capital city of London is particularly popular and our students will also be treated to a trip a walking tour in the University city of Cambridge among other exciting afternoon excursions

A healthy balance between revision and relaxation

Our bespoke holiday solution aims to help students find that healthy balance between relaxing and revising. All activities optional, so that students can feel rested when they return back to school. Those attending can choose to study in the classroom provided in the morning, or may opt to study in their room. Our Academic Director will be on hand to support students who require assistance whilst they revise.

“We are committed to ensuring that Bright World students have a restful, productive and enjoyable half term or Easter break away from school. We are well-equipped to offer a homely and safe environment along with academic support to help them with their all-important examination revision.”
