Private accommodation checks for under-18s

We take the welfare of our younger students very seriously, and we have a special service in place for our students whose parents do not want homestay, but who opt instead for them to stay with a relative or family friend in Newcastle.

Temporary Guardian Declaration form

Private Accommodation Check (fee £50)

I want my child to stay with a family friend or a relative while in Newcastle, and I want the Private Accommodation check* to be carried out.

  • Download a Temporary Guardian declaration form. This must be completed in full and returned to the school at least 4 weeks before the arrival.
  • The school will then arrange for one of our homestay inspectors to visit the home and to meet the temporary guardians to discuss their responsibilities and to explain what the school's role will be.
  • Our inspectors will also run a Risk Assessment check for the travel route from the accommodation address to the school.

*Cost £50.00
