Placement tests will take place on each of these days at:

Travel Information for Students

It is very important that the school is provided with full travel details for students arriving in Canada, including name of airline, airport departure date and time, expected arrival date and time and the correct terminal at Toronto Pearson International airport. Also provide details of any stopovers. Please forward this to us at least one week in advance of the flight in order that we have sufficient time to arrange airport pick up and home stay.

In addition, please let us know of any delays or changes to flight schedules that may occur en route. Drivers will not be able to remain at the airport indefinitely; the more accurate information you can provide, the better are we able to support arriving students.

For those parents who will be accompanying theirs wards to Canada, please find below links to some of the hotels closest to the school. We recommend that you book early as the demand for hotels is pretty high at this time of the year.

Staybridge Hotel and Suites:

Homewood Suites By Hilton:

Sheraton Hotel:

Hamilton Plaza:

Days Inn:

There is always the option of Airbnb if you are going to be here for more than one week; it is probably more cost effective, and use of the kitchen is likely to be available if you are renting the whole apartment. The website is:
