Our boarding programme at the prestigious English school Stonar, part of the NACE group, gives our pupils the chance to spend one term, two terms or a whole year there. The 120-year-old school is set among some wonderful surroundings near Bath and 90 minutes from London. The classes are small, there are many free-time activities and pupils can study the British curriculum without losing touch with their local tutor.
As well as its excellent academic programme and well-equipped facilities, Stonar offers students the opportunity to improve their knowledge by living in English alongside pupils from all over the world, pupils with whom they share experiences and make life-long friendships.
The residences where the students stay make for the students’ full academic development as they do not need to travel to school and there are no distractions from outside school life. In their free time pupils can spend time in the common room equipped with Wi-Fi, TV, DVD player and videogames.
What Stonar has to offer outdoors is wonderful: pupils can take advantage of all the school’s sports facilities where they can play tennis and football, go horse-riding and swimming with their new friends. This gives them a chance to relax and socialise with schoolmates from all over the world, learning from the older ones and giving the younger ones a helping hand.
“The extracurricular activities at Stonar School are great. I have tried hockey for the first time and now I’m in the school team. I love it! At first it’s a bit difficult at the boarding school when they speak in English, but you get used to it straight away and the teachers are very attentive to us because there aren’t many of us in the class.”

“I love this school because the teachers are great, they always help us, especially if English isn’t our mother tongue. I also really like the activities we do at the boarding school, like going to the bowling alley, or ice skating.”
