Accommodation for Senior School (16 and above)
For those senior students who require accommodation in the area, the school will supply parents with a list of vetted landladies/landlords providing boarding or self catering accommodation, during the summer term. The Hammond will have met with, and interviewed all prospective landlords/landladies and have inspected the premises. These people will come from a range of sources including people that will themselves already be known to the Hammond or be recommended by staff, parents, existing landlords/landladies or third parties with whom theHammondhas had dealings. In some cases it will simply be people who are already involved in boarding/letting of property, or wish to become involved and are aware of the fact that theHammond does provide this service for parents/guardians.
The Hammond, as a matter of routine ensure that all prospective live in landlords/landladies have a DBS check undertaken. TheHammondhowever cannot give any assurances or guarantees beyond this. Professional students and their parents or guardians must carry out any further checks that they deem necessary before proceeding to contract with the landlord/landlady, should they so wish.
TheHammond will probably be able to give indicative cost levels for accommodation in the area, but the discussions relating to the specific terms and conditions of contracts will be purely between the students/ parents /guardians and the landlord/landlady.
Subsequently, any issues relating to financial disputes, social aspects of house rules etc are individual to that contract between the landlord/landlady and the professional student/parent/guardian and as such must be resolved directly between those parties.
TheHammond has a policy for monitoring the performance of landlords/landladies through students and parent/guardian feedback and will take this into account when reviewing the list of landlords/landladies and properties that it makes available to students/parents/guardians.
The Hammond likes to feel that this facility can be useful in giving assistance to students/ parents / guardians in this new phase of the student's life; however, there is no need whatsoever to feel obligated to utilise it. All professional students/parents/guardians are free to proceed to investigate the wider accommodation market place available within Chester and the surrounding area, and make the arrangements that best suit them regarding accommodation.
