HSI Covid Policy

Please Note: If the parent/legal guardian of a student refuses to allow the student to be vaccinated the following conditions apply:
  • If there is a new outbreak of a contagious form of Covid or any other major infection, the Student will be obliged  to return home immediately, without a right of appeal and without any entitlement to a refund.
  • Parents/Guardians will be responsible for any extra costs (such as isolation, medical or other treatment etc) that may arise in these circumstances.
  • As the student will have been placed with a host family willing to accommodate him/her as an unvaccinated student, in any circumstances where the student is obliged to leave this host family we will make all efforts to locate a new family willing to host but if this is not successful the student must return home immediately and will not be entitled to any refund of fees paid and fees due.
  • However, if it is a question of imminent danger to the student we will of course remove him/her to new accommodation.

In advance of the start of the Programme we will request completion of a Covid-19 questionnaire to capture further information on the student’s Covid-19 history and vaccination details.

Please Note: Most boarding schools require all students to be fully vaccinated.
