Our Melksham centre was established in 2014 and hosts 1 coach per week. The high quality of our hosts and staff ensured that, like Trowbridge, it has become a firm favourite with the group leaders – many of whom book time and time again – and are never disappointed.

Our Melksham Team


Gill Brindley is our Coordinator for Melksham centre. She is responsible for recruitment and looks after the students, teachers and host families throughout the stay to ensure that everything runs smoothly and to help if you have any problems or queries.


Jo Cass is our part-time Operations Manager. She deals with all aspects of the business and at the beginning of each season will be contacting all our Trowbridge hosts to ascertain their non-availability, so that she can allocate the students to available hosts.


Jess Hopper is our part-time Group Administrator for Melksham. As we receive information from our agents about the forthcoming groups, she will send our hosts the allocation emails, programmes, and information about allergies. Jess plays a key role in ensuring everything is well organised before the groups even arrive!
