Cambridge Melchior College

Bright World has created a bespoke half term and Easter holiday programme for international students needing somewhere to stay during their school holidays. Our unique Relax & Revise programme incorporates studying, shopping and excursions and is a great alternative to traditional host family stay.

designed for boarding school students

Burgess Hill Girls

Relax & Revise has been carefully designed to match the needs and musts of international students aged 12 and above who want to spend the school holidays with their school friends in touching distance from the city's most famous landmarks and attractions. This new alternative to homestay aims to help students find that healthy balance between relaxing and revising. We make all activies optional, so that students can feel rested when they return back to school.
