German School Partners with: Bootham Private School and York College of Further Education

Our partnerships with 30 German schools offer significant subsidised long study opportunities for partner school students in the beautiful city of York in the United Kingdom. Non partner students are welcome to apply but please note subsidies are not available. A list of all our partner schools are listed in our: ‘Long Stay Information Pack – including application – for Bootham School or York College’.

(A PDF of this pack is available on this web page: ‘Information Pack’ however you will need a word document version to make an application, so please email Jim Tomlinson for an Information Pack.)

Please note we are NOT agents charging agent fees or have any tie in contracts ...or anything of that nature. Our long stays are based on flexibility and goodwill.

Interested? Firstly, you will notice that this section of the web is in English NOT German as if you cannot read it comfortably then the long stay is probably not for you as your level of English must be at least a B2 Common European Level, coupled with a very hard working and DYNAMIC personality.

Most students have completed our ‘Embrace England’ short stay camps but not all. The duration of the long stays are:

1 term     ·    2 terms    ·    1 year (3 terms)    ·    2 years (6 terms) at either:

Overview of the Partnership:

Over the last 11 years 150 German students from German schools have studied at Huntington School, where the emphais has been on academic achievement in a ‘Happy and Safe’ environment.

Our pastoral support stystem guaranteed host families were carefully selected, trained and DBS checked. German parents knew the students were cared for 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Each year we visited our partner schools in Germany and present about ‘ Long Stay Opportunities at Huntington School.’

However, with the outcome of Brexit state schools with Sixth Forms, such as Huntington School, are no longer permitted to have long stay German students. With great sadness, the long stays with Huntington School stopped in 2020-21.

However, York schools via an educational collaborotive, were determined to create new subsidised opportunities for German partner school students to study in York with a Private School and a Further Education College (FE), as they are still permitted to have long stay students.

As yet, these subsidies are not funded by the ‘Embrace England’ 14 day short courses but by Bootham Private School and York College of FE in order to support this new partnership arrangement with our existing partner schools.

Pending the success and student feedback of the long stays at York College and Bootham School in 2021-22, it is envisaged to restart the ‘Embrace England’ 14 day short stay programmes in 2023.

This will lead to an increase in host subsidies for our partner school students and hopefully return to the same level of subsidies that were available for students when studying at Huntington School.

Meanwhile, long stays are now available at Bootham School and York College from Sept 2021, with the exact same host pastoral support that has been in place for the last 11 years.

Bootham School and York College provide a very different experience that matches a full spectrum of needs, wants and affordability.

Both options are underpinned by the ‘Embrace England’ host family pastoral system that has supported the long stays for the last 11 years. It was graded as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted Inspectors in 2018 and we feel there is no better HAPPY AND SAFE!
