Homestay Accommodation

We find the best hosts that we can who will welcome you and look after you during your stay. They have a responsibility to make you feel welcome and “at home”, but you also have a responsibility to be a good guest. Your host will treat you as a full member of the family, eating together and sharing the common living areas.

Good communication is needed. On arrival, exchange telephone numbers with your host. Always text or call your host if you are going to be late for dinner or talk to them if there any foods you don’t like. If there is something which you do not understand or if something makes you feel uncomfortable, tell your host immediately. Our hosts are experienced with hosting students from all around the world and are here to help you feel at home.

If you are unhappy about something, but do not feel comfortable discussing it with your host, please speak with Julie, our Accommodation and Welfare Officer – julie@ihmanchester.com. Remember, most hosts and their students form a genuine friendship that can last for the rest of their lives!

Standard Homestay

  • Half board Monday – Friday, full board at weekends.
  • Students may share a twin room with another player on the football programme.
  • Sharing bathroom with the hosts.
  • Sunday arrival and departure.

What to expect from homestay:

All homestay hosts are carefully selected and experienced with international student care.
– You will be treated as a member of the family
– You will be provided with a clean bedroom equipped with a bed and storage for your clothes
– Wifi will be available to you
– A desk or table, somewhere quiet so that you can do your homework
– Clean towels and bed linen will be provided each week
– Your clothes will be washed and dried once every week
– English must be the main language spoken in the house

Meals that are provided in homestay accommodation:

Monday to Friday -Breakfast and evening meal
Saturday and Sunday - Breakfast, lunch and evening meal
In the event of a student booking the room only option (no meals), students are normally not allowed to use the cooking facilities but should be allowed to store snacks (fruit, crisps, drinks) in a cupboard in the kitchen.

We select our host families based upon their suitability to welcome our students. Our students come from all over the world with different cultural and ethnic backgrounds and religious beliefs. Our staff and host family providers accept our all of our students and welcome them unconditionally, irrespective of all these different factors. It would be completely wrong for them to not do this. Our Equality Policy reflects and incorporates UK legislation that makes it illegal to discriminate against individuals based upon gender, race, ethnicity or religion. For all these reasons, we also expect our international students to be accepting and tolerant of others who they may meet, study with and live with in Manchester.

Travel

Students must travel independently from the homestay to the city centre school each day, using public transport. Your host will help you to know the best way to do this.

The cost per week of travel to the student can range from £25.00 – £30.00 per week. The cost depends on the location of the selected homestay.
All our homestay hosts live in the residential areas, outside the city centre. Journey time from homestay to school can be anywhere between 20 and 45 minutes.

What to expect

A clean bedroom equipped with a bed and storage for your clothes
Wifi
A desk or table somewhere quiet to do your homework
Daily access to a bathroom
Fresh towels and bed linen each week
Weekly laundry arrangements
English must be the main language spoken in the house

Homestay Rules

Respect the rules applying in your new home.
Always keep your room clean.
Lock the house door and shut the windows in your room when you leave the house in accordance with your house rules. DO NOT keep your key with your host’s address in case you lose it.
Do not use the telephone without permission.
If you wish to invite friends or schoolmates, always ask your host for permission before bringing them home.
No loud noise, speaking on Skype or music at night.
Alcohol, smoking and drugs as well as bad language are prohibited.
Always try to use the English language whilst at your host family, unless communicating with your family back home.

More advice:

It is important to try to spend time with your host and make an effort to learn about them. It is also polite to volunteer to help with family chores e.g. washing up, setting and clearing the table etc. Find out when you are allowed to use the bathroom in the mornings and evenings and when are the regular family mealtimes.

Remember that your host might not be of the same ethnic or religious background as yours. Please remember that you will never have to take part in your host’s religious life. However, your host will help you should you wish to practice your religion.

Curfew

Students under the age of 18 must be home before 9pm every day, without exception. If you are not home by this time and your host or the school have not heard from you, your family will be called and this will trigger the on-call team to look for you. The police might also get involved if this does not get resolved quickly.

Students over the age of 18 do not have to be home at any particular time but it is important to inform your host of an approximate time where you will be home and to be quiet if you are going to be home late.

Meals

Breakfast will be provided every morning.
Dinner will be provided every evening and eaten with your host.
Lunch will be provided on Saturday and Sunday (all week for full board).
You are not allowed to use the kitchen unless you have been given clear permission from your host.
If you are going to miss or be late for mealtimes, please inform your host.
More advice:
Every host is different and so each family will have different food on offer. However, please feel free to tell the family if you have any preferences.

Laundry

Your host will be doing your laundry once a week.
Do not wash your own clothes without permission or dry them in your bedroom.
More advice:
It is possible that they offer to do so more often but please discuss this schedule with them, and try to re-wear non dirty clothes – it will be good for the planet!

Finally

Remember that people in Britain may do things differently to what you are accustomed. It is easier to misunderstand a situation when communicating in a foreign language. If you are unsure about something, ask your host family or Julie in school.

English

Pupils always produce excellent results in English at Hulme Hall. This is due to the combination of exciting study material and dynamic teaching. A broad range of genres are covered, featuring poetry old and new, classic novels and Shakespearian plays. The creative child will be encouraged to develop a love of the written and spoken word which will be apparent in their own writing. This broad, balanced curriculum will provide the building blocks for examination skills, study and success.

Hulme Hall Science

Science

The three principle areas of Science: Chemistry, Physics and Biology are taught independently in the school by subject specialists. Practical work and demonstration experiments are introduced to provide maximum impact and understanding. This "hands-on" approach makes the acquisition of basic skills a natural process and furthers the pupils' appreciation of "How Science Works."

Personal, Social, Health & Economic Education

Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education has in various forms been part of the National Curriculum for schools in UK since 2000. Some aspects, but not all, have been compulsory. PSHE education is defined by the schools inspectorate Ofsted as a planned program to help children and young people develop fully as individuals and as members of families and social and economic communities. Its goal is to equip young people with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthily, safely, productively and responsibly.

Physical Education & Sport

The School aims to recognize and develop talents and skills in every child, knowing that sporting success can further academic achievement as well as providing enrichment to an already rewarding experience. At Hulme Hall there is never a shortage of sporting successes, inside and outside of school. Both individual and team sports form an important part of life at the school.

Harnessing the competitive spirit is a key aspect of the school's philosophy of educating the complete person. Inter-school competitions are a regular in football, cross country, tug of war, rounders, cricket and athletics. Other sports are introduced to coincide with the sporting calendar: athletics, cross-country and tennis.

Winning the 2007 Under 16 Football League is just one example of the commitment shown to sports by the school and recognition of sporting talent. The School makes use of local, international standard facilities for a range of sports, including swimming, badminton, tennis and squash.

Year 10 and Year 11 GCSE exam subjects

Students entering school at the start of Year 10 (at 14 years of age) or Year 11 (at 15 years of age) will be studying towards taking 6 GCSE exams during May / June of Year 11.

Hulme Hall Math

3 Afternoons

Three afternoons per week during academic school term time and 5 times per week during academic school holidays students will participate in football training sessions with EduKick UEFA qualified coaches (Monday - Friday) minimum 2 hours per session. Training sessions are focused and tailored to develop each player both individually and all players collectively as a team technically and tactically targeting competitive fixtures. In the initial weeks of a program players will be tested and given feedback on areas for improvement. These tests will be repeated with targets set for each player on a regular basis. Players will be involved in football specific fitness work to improve stamina, strength and core stability which are vitally required attributes in the professional game. Players will learn about their own responsibilities in play along with teamwork shape and different systems of play. Players may experience different positions and coaches will try to find the optimum position and role in the games for players.

*NOTE

Students will be transported by private bus from Hulme Hall direct to the Edukick training facility and returned to Hulme Hall during regular academic school terms. During the academic school holidays students have the option to choose to attend 5 afternoon training sessions at the EduKick Training facility with the senior group and if choosing this option are required to travel independently from their host family to our own City Centre located school from where return private transport to the training facility is provided.

Posted Tuesday, October 16, 2018

Competitive Friendly matches

Games will be scheduled based upon the EduKick MANCHESTER squad's ability level to allow them to put into practice what they have worked on during the daily training sessions. These games are also an opportunity for our players to showcase their talent to the opponent coaches or watching scouts. Many of the opposing coaches from colleges also work part time in professional academies, therefore players can easily be noticed from these games and invited to attend individual trials. In addition to the regular weekly matches throughout the season we will schedule ‘target' fixtures where we will play against academies or youth teams from the professional clubs. Past examples of fixtures played are against Preston North End, Accrington Stanley, Bury FC, Manchester United Foundation team, Manchester City Shadow squad, Curzon Ashton, Barrow FC, Altringham FC along with many colleges and visiting touring teams in the Manchester area.

*Note: Juniors are included with our senior program participants to participate in matches when possible. Every effort will be made to schedule matches on designated Junior program training days but occasionally this will not be possible. If a game is scheduled for a Junior program none training day participation of Junior program participants will be at the discretion of the EduKick coaching staff and Hulme Hall teaching staff.

Guest coaching sessions with professional football clubs/coaches in the northwest giving you an opportunity to showcase your talent

During the program we invite ex professional players, current club coaches and highly experienced coaches from the UK to our training ground to conduct training sessions. These are a great opportunity not only to showcase a player's talent to the pros, but to see first-hand how the professional club coaches work and what they expect. Previous guest coaches include coaches from Blackburn Rovers, Burnley FC, ex-players from Preston, Manchester city and Manchester United along with current players and coaches from a variety of clubs on the PFA sessions. During the 2014/2015 season the players were coached by Manchester United star Michael Carrick.

Note: every effort will be made to book the guest coaching session on one of the 3 weekly training days but it cannot be guaranteed. If the guest session takes place on a non-training day it can only be attended by our senior players not junior program participants.

Posted Tuesday, October 16, 2018

Entry into the UK football Trials in Manchester (2x during the Junior program Year)

Participants are able to showcase their talent in front of invited scouts from clubs at all levels of the football structure in the UK and playing alongside some top quality players in the trials. This is a real target for all players to get noticed. At UK football trials on average they have 12 - 15 different club scouts in attendance, all looking for players. When attending through us players also have the advantage of more information going to the scouts and the UK football trials placement officer. We submit player's information with notes on their progress throughout their time with us and previous achievements sometimes with links to their own player profile on our website. This information is provided to all scouts in attendance. Attending the trials twice gives our participants an initial opportunity to test out the trials and familiarise themselves with the environment and nature of the event then use the knowledge and feedback gained to build, prepare and focus on the second session. In recent history we have had EduKick players selected at the events for further club trials with Crewe Alexandra FC, Bury FC, Accrington Stanley FC, Everton FC and Witton Albion.

Guest speakers from the world of football & Sport (ADDITIONAL PURCHASE OPTION)

Throughout the course we invite guests to come into the academy to talk to players about their experiences, give advice or talk simply about how football and sport works in the UK. Along with this we invite guest speakers who could offer further opportunities to progress in soccer in the US on scholarships. These are a great insight into the game as a whole and are valuable learning tools for our participants. Previous guest speakers include heads of recruitment from Blackburn Rovers, Accrington Stanley & Everton, ex-players such as Jon Macken and Roberto Navajas, Colin Champers - professional scout, nutritionists who have worked with top players in the UK and USA scholarship programmes.

Posted Tuesday, October 16, 2018

Six weekly Reports & Feedback

Each player and parent will receive a written six weekly report with information on their footballing progression, academic progression (if applicable) and attendance. These are vital for players to be able to assess where they currently stand and assess their goals and targets.

Online player profile/CV

Every player no matter the duration of their stay with us can have an online player profile which gives as much or as little information about them as they would like. These are the pages that the program newsletters get linked to if there is a particular news article on a player, they score a goal or they are player of the month. We have the ability to upload player highlights to these pages too. Through the season we have various social media pages to which information about the program and progress/success of players is posted daily. These social media pages are followed by thousands of people, shared by man including talent ID scouts, club recruitment officers and coaches. It is a great way to promote yourself so we encourage all players to participate and continually keep their information updated.
