Trowbridge is our longest running centre.  It is very well established and always receives excellent feedback from visiting groups.  As a result, we host many returning schools.


The Coordinators for Trowbridge - Pauline Connors and Haydn Briggs - are long-standing hosts with a wealth of experience and, as such, you will always be guaranteed great support throughout the stay! After many related Covid delays, Pauline & Haydn will finally be getting married in September 2022, so will then become Mr & Mrs Briggs. 

Our Trowbridge Team


Each of the School groups is assigned a Coordinator who will look after the students, teachers and host families throughout the stay. As experienced hosts, they are there to ensure that everything runs smoothly and to help if you have any problems or queries.


The Administrators deal with placements and recruitment so will be contacting you with details about your students and to explain how we work.
