Barnes Host Families & Harrogate Grammar School are looking for families to host Swiss students

We (Barnes Host Families) are proud to have introduced Harrogate Grammar School to a successful Swiss project which has already been running for four years in other high performing schools in England.

The Swiss-French students are selected to study in Year 12 in England based on their academic achievements. The programme forms the middle year of their three-year French/English bilingual course.

This project is expected to bring new relationships between families in Switzerland and families around Harrogate, some of which could last a lifetime.

In England the students study A Levels with the English students and all study German and English, so they really do help to promote languages locally since their first language is Swiss. They live like British teenagers getting involved in local activities both in school and outside of school. We have students with all types of interests and so it is likely that a whole host of people will come across the students in the local area, since the Swiss do like to get the most out of life. They are also from a beautiful area facing Lake Geneva and so we hope the programme will lead to many trips between people from Harrogate and this area in Switzerland in future years, as has happened in other areas where the students have been attending schools so far.

During their year in Harrogate the Swiss students will need to be hosted by local families, who will provide an invaluable service to make the programme successful. Families are likely to enjoy a rewarding experience, possibly making good friends with their student’s family since we encourage a close relationship between families. The students arrive in September and return home for Christmas and Easter before completing their year in July. The students need to be provided with their own bedroom plus all meals except lunch on school days and families receive a generous remuneration. We also support families and students closely to ensure that everybody gets the most out of this experience.

If you are interested in learning more about hosting a Swiss student, please contact Ric from Barnes on 07748 113782 or email
