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.

  • Beverley Simon

    Principal                                                        

  • 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!
