Guardianship of School Children

When choosing to provide a top British education for your child, you want to know that they are cared for and supported throughout their whole journey. For parents who remain overseas for the duration of their child’s education, we are there to provide a support system and address the day to day needs of your child.

College Guardians offer a range of packages designed to meet the needs of each individual, for school children from the age of eight, up to those in their twenties who are studying university or pathway courses. This page looks at our four packages for children studying at school in the UK.

What we provide

Young people studying at school in the UK who come from overseas typically need a certain level of welfare, wellbeing and academic support alongside that provided by their school pastoral system. This includes regular communication and visits to ensure that your child is happy, settled and are able to make the most out of the education opportunity that they have been given. This goes alongside the wider aspects of supporting your child while they are studying abroad; being a phone call away, arranging stays with a host family (where applicable), arranging transport, administering pocket money, sorting uniform and extra curricular needs all being prime examples.

As with all our packages, we put the needs of your child first. They will always be able to get in touch with us using our 24 hour on call number, during school term time, whilst your child is in the care of one of our host families and during the time they are travelling to and from the airport. Whatever the circumstances and whatever the needs of each individual child, you can be confident that they are being cared for.

Please read below for the four packages offered for school children and sixth formers. In addition to our Premium and Standard services, College Guardians offers a tailor-made option. If you wish to consider this service for your child, please get in touch so that we can discuss your individual needs and prices.

Guardianship Packages

College Guardians can offer the following packages:

The main difference between the Premium and Standard service is that the Premium service includes the provision of a host family. We recognise that some children may not need a host family, however we require children aged 13 or under to be registered onto our Premium Service.
