The School

Stafford House Cambridge is located in the heart of the storied city. The school’s modern classrooms, canteen and student access centre in the old city are just steps away from the most famous colleges in the world. Students in Cambridge love taking advantage of the unique activities that make this corner of the UK famous: punting on the river Cam, tours of St John’s College, Evensong at King’s College Chapel, and exploring the theatres and boutiques in the city centre.

Accommodation

Where you live is key to your happiness and academic success. Whether you prefer the independence of a student residence or the familiarity of homestay, our accommodation options are chosen to offer you the flexibility of choice and quality you deserve.

Homestay

One of our most popular accommodation options, homestay allows you to integrate into family life and practise your English language outside the classroom, over dinner and throughout the weekend with your welcoming hosts. This is a unique way to live and study at your chosen destination.

Standard Residence

Similar to a residence but offering more independence, you will live with other students but on a smaller scale than in a residence, allowing you to build lasting friendships with your house mates. Fully furnished and equipped for self-catering.

STANDARD RESIDENCE - MONTAGUE LODGE

Premium Residence

Recently constructed in summer 2016, Student Castle is one of the finest examples of modern accommodation for students in Cambridge. Only moments from Jesus Green, and less than 15 minutes walking distance from the school and the city centre, students can benefit from contemporary and comfortable living in this central location.

PREMIUM RESIDENCE - STUDENT CASTLE

Summer Residence 18+

Offering you more space to yourself, our hand-picked student residences provide the chance to live more independently with like-minded people from all over the world.

SUMMER RESIDENCE 18+

Summer Residence 16-17

We offer fully supervised residences for 16 & 17 year olds in July and August. This comes with a bespoke social programme designed for this age group as well as full board catering.

The residences include breakfast, lunch and dinner at Stafford House canteen and live-in residential supervisors. This is a great alternative to homestay for students under 18.

  • Kelsey Harrington

    Student Services and Accommodation Officer

    I am an Essex girl born and bred, don't let the reputation fool you! I am relatively new to this position and am excited to be working with both all of you students and staff as well. I have lived in a few places around the UK and love travelling abroad. Hopefully I will get to live abroad one day so feel free to come and convince me to move to your, no doubt beautiful hometowns.

  • Laureline Galiny

    Director of Studies                    

    I first discovered what a language school was when I did an internship as part of my Applied Linguistics Master’s degree. I worked as an activity coordinator, a receptionist and a marketing assistant in a small family-run language school in the centre of Wellington, New Zealand. This is when I decided I wanted to play a part in the English Learning world! Nothing makes me happier than to see students noticing their progress and growing on a linguistic and personal level. I hope to meet you soon at Stafford House Cambridge!

  • Pixie Ha

    Student Services Officer

    Twelve years ago, I was a young lady with an amazing opportunity. For the first time, I travelled to the UK to undertake a two-week English course with CATS. The stimulating experience of a new culture, new people, and the challenge of communicating in a foreign language were extremely fulfilling. This highly enjoyable, yet all too brief, time in Cambridge impacted greatly on the course of my life. My main aim is to ensure that students feel fully supported, welcomed and able to fulfil their potential during their stay as I myself did 12 years ago!
