Supervision of Students

Supervision of students is an important issue. We offer lots of individual care and attention to each student. Our welfare and support staff are on site at all times - 24 hours a day. We have a 24 hour emergency contact phone number for students and parents.

The following levels of supervision are provided.

At the Residence

Staff are always on duty in the evening and in the residence at night. In addition there is 24 hour security. During the evening and night time students are strictly prohibited from leaving the residence unsupervised.


Staff to student ratios are strictly enforced and students are double checked on and off buses. During excursions, free time is often given for the students to explore a designated area, e.g. a shopping area. Students can do this in small groups unsupervised but they are told the time and place to meet and also where staff will be during their free time.


Any absence from class is immediately reported to the Camp Manager or Director of Studies and investigated.

Other Necessary Information


All meals are provided in large, comfortable cafeterias on campus, except on excursions when a packed-lunch is given to all students. Wholesome and varied food is served and special dietary requirements can be catered for. Please advise us at the time of enrolment if a student has any special dietary requirements.


Laundry facilities are available at the residence halls where students are accommodated. Bed linen and towels are changed once a week, but no other laundry is included in the course fees. If students wish to wash clothes during their stay, they will be responsible for doing so.


A 24-hour emergency telephone number will be given in writing to students. All students will be issued with an identity card, which explains what action is to be followed in the event of an emergency or other difficulty. Students will be told to carry this card at all times.

All students must provide an emergency contact number to the staff on their first day. This should normally be the number of a parent/ guardian.
