Accommodation for Senior School (16 and above)
The Hammond will, during the summer term, supply new 1st year professional / senior students and their parents, or guardians, with a list of vetted host families providing boarding and self-catering accommodation in Chester.
Please be aware that only students aged 18 and over are
permitted to rent the self catering accommodation from the list of
andlords/landladies issued by The Hammond.
This is due to the statutory obligations of the school to provide for and safeguard the welfare of children. Those students under 18 come under the category of 'child' in this instance and will need to be accommodated with a host family / traditional boarding landlady. The Hammond will have met with, and interviewed
all prospective Host Families and 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 the Hammond has 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 the Hammond does provide this service for parents/guardians.The Hammond, as a matter of routine, ensures that all prospective members of the Host Families over the age of 16, have a DBS check undertaken. The Hammond will also undertake the necessary checks and procedures, with the Host Families, in line with the National Minimum Standards for boarding schools
(NMS20) for long stay lodgings. Professional / Senior students and their parents or guardians must carry out any further checks that they deem necessary before proceeding to contract with the host families /landlord/landlady, should they so wish.
Indicative cost levels for accommodation in the area can be
provided by The Hammond, but the discussions
relating to the specific terms and conditions of contracts will be purely between the students/ parents /guardians and the host family/landlord/landlady.
Subsequently, any issues relating to financial disputes, social aspects of house rules etc are individual to that contract between the host family/landlord/landlady and the professional student/parent/guardian and as such must be resolved directly between those parties.
The Hammond has a policy for monitoring the performance of Host
Families through students and parent/guardian feedback and will
take this into account when reviewing the list of Host Families
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.
Those students under the age of 18, will be asked to agree to
certain behaviour and conduct, while lodging with
the Host Families from the Hammond list.
