Welcome to Sterling House. We like to think that we are all very relaxed and friendly here at  Sterling House, and we really like everybody to enjoy themselves and have a good time. But there are a few important rules that you must all follow. First , you must all arrive at class on time. Classes start at 9am and we expect you all to be ready and waiting when your teacher arrives. Classes finish at 12.30 and in the afternoons we have a full programme of sports, excursions and other activities until it's time to eat at 7.30pm. After dinner, it's homework time. You must all do your homework every evening. This is very important. We want you to have a good time, but we also want you to learn English.
