One of the best ways to learn more about the people of England is to choose homestay (or private home*) accommodation. Family life is informal and the people are welcoming, friendly and talkative, so you will have plenty of opportunities to practise your English. All homestays (or private homes*) are carefully selected and visited regularly to ensure consistently high standards.

All our homestays / private homes in the Wimbledon area are located within a 30-45 minute travel time by foot, bus, train or tram. During the off peak season there is a larger selection of homestays (or private homes*) within walking distance. These cannot be guaranteed. Homestay (or private home*) accommodation includes breakfast and dinner 7 days a week.


Our residential accommodation provides comfort and security away from home and gives you the opportunity to be part of an international student community.

CES is delighted to announce that it will be using the Beaumont Court Residence for our London school. The self-catering residence is located beside Kings Cross Tube Station. It’s 35 minutes from Wimbledon and is easily accessible. All rooms are single en-suite and fully furnished. There are also a number of other residences we use which are on a request basis.
