World School invites you and your family to join many of other families across Peterborough who enjoy the enriching and rewarding experience of hosting! We believe that the host family service we offer is the most important element for students experiencing life in England.

All our families agree to abide by English UK’s Homestay Code of Practice (see below) for providers of homestay accommodation for students from abroad.

English UK’s Homestay Code of Practice:

  • To encourage the student to speak English as much as possible in your home
  • To encourage the student to feel at home and to treat him/her as a member of the family rather than a paying guest
  • Not to host another student of the same native language at the same time unless by special arrangement with the students and the schools/centres
  • To provide a clean and comfortable student room, meeting the requirements laid down by the British Council
  • To provide a home environment in which it is possible for the student to carry on his/her English Studies properly
  • To provide the student with a balanced and appropriate diet
  • To show due concern for the welfare, safety and security of the student during his/her stay
  • To give the student reasonable and regular access to bathroom and laundry facilities
  • To maintain a close liaison with the student’s school/centre and so be in a position to help resolve any problems that the student may encounter during his/her stay
  • To respect the student’s different cultural background and to be sensitive to the needs of the student

“Este es nuestro quinto curso realizando esta experiencia linguistico-cultural, en la cual hemos pasado nueve dias en Peterborough visitando la ciudad. Hemos conocido una cultura diferente en la que nos hemos integrado perfectamente, hemos compartido y a su vez hemos disfrutado. La valoracion tanto de profesores como de alumnos es muy positiva. Por lo que, repetiremos la experiencia.”

Este curso, un grupo de alumnos de 4º de ESO de nuestro instituto ha realizado por primera vez un viaje de estudios de una semana a Ingalterra, acompañados por sus jóvenes e intrépidos profesores Ángeles Torralba y Antonio Lara.

Alojados en familias en la ciudad de Peterborough (norte de Londres), nuestros alumnos han recibido clases por las mañanas en el centro Worldschool y por la tarde hemos visitado Peterborough y la cercana Stamford, además de excursiones de día completo a Cambridge y London.

Todo el mundo ha quedado muy contento tanto de la organización del viaje, actividades y excursiones como de las familias que nos han alojado ; una experiencia inolvidable. ¿Repetimos?


Katharine of Aragon Commemoration Services – Peterborough 2010

News, Peterborough No Comments »

Date: Friday, January 29, 2010 – 8:30am – 10:00pm

Katharine of Aragon was buried in the Cathedral on 29th January 1536 in what was then the site of the Abbey.  In 1986 Peterborough was twinned with Alcalá de Henares, the birthplace of Katharine of Aragon.  Each year since then we have held an ecumenical Commemoration Service in the Cathedral.  This year the service will take place at 11.30 am and will include contributions from the renowned Shakespearian actress, Jane Lapotaire, as well as readings and prayers in Spanish, and Tudor music and dance performed by local schoolchildren.  It is both a lively and colourful occasion, no tickets are required and all are welcome to join us.

Last year we welcomed around 900 people to the Commemoration Service and due to the growing ecumenical and public interest in this occasion we are working in partnership with Peterborough City Council to deliver an extended schedule of activity this January.  This will include a Roman Catholic Mass and prayers for Katharine at 8.30 am on the High Altar, beside her grave.   At 1.45 pm the renowned historian, broadcaster and writer, Alison Weir, will be signing her books at the local Waterstones bookstore in Peterborough Town Centre (Bridge Street).  There will also be a Candlelight Procession at dusk (5pm) during which all present are welcome to pay their respects at Katharine’s resting place and are invited to place a flower, prayer, card or pomegranate on her tomb.  The procession will be immediately followed by a short service of Vespers in the Cathedral, which will be sung by Peterborough Cathedral Choir.
