Guardian Education Schools – Finding The Right Guardian For Your Child

Guardian education schools: what are they? All boarding schools that take on international students are required to ensure that the child has an education guardian to look after their best interests. But how, as a parent, do you choose between all of the guardianship companies that are available? Here are a few tips to help you choose wisely.

When on the search for the best boarding school for your child, you most likely checked out the school website, looked at reviews online and asked for personal recommendations. You may have also double-checked all of their documentation, licences and reports to ensure that they were up to date and providing a high level of education. The same approach is essential when you are looking for the right in-country support for your child. The best organisation available for providing care and support for your children are registered as AEGIS guardianship providers. Being registered with AEGIS means they uphold that organisation’s stringent criteria in order to provide the best possible service. Once you have narrowed your list to only include such companies, it is time to start looking at reviews and asking for personal recommendations. It is also important to contact your chosen companies direct to ensure that they can offer the support your child needs at a package you can afford. Discuss their specific requirements, such as accommodation, travel, emergency cover, and aspects such as books and equipment purchasing before you make a final decision. Remember this company will provide the individual who will in essence take your place for your child’s time at school.

Academic Guardians UK is just such an AEGIS accredited organisation. We have professionals who can help you find the right guardian education schools for you, and provide the best quality of care while your child is studying here. Visit our website for details of our service packages or email info@academic-guardians.co.uk with any questions you might have.

Dear Kelsey, Brilliant! You're company efficiency is totally amazing and helpful.
Good morning Dawn & Andrew
I will need to personally email and thank you and the host family that my daughters stayed with over the weekend for their kind gesture. Their thoughtfulness towards understanding the need for a girl of my daughters age to feel secured and cared for, I am not taking for granted.
It was such a relief when she told me that you had already arranged for a packed lunch and the family provided all their favourite foods.
This ones, (host family) you, certainly hand-picked ! And I thank you for that.! With many like them, there is still hope in the loss of empathy in humanity.
Have a lovely day

Dear Dawn & team at Academic Guardians
Hope things are fine with you. Now the school is over and Sarah is now on her way home...
Therefore, I would like to say thank you for all your kindness and hospitality that has been extended to Sarah all this time. Unfortunately, I didn't attend the Speech Day this year so I didn't have the opportunity to express my gratitude personally to you. Hopefully someday somewhere an opportunity would arise for me to do so.
I wish you and the whole family a joyful summer break...and all the best for the future.
With warmest regards

Dear AGUK,
Thank you kindly for the travel details that you have sent through for both Natalie and Edith for the end of this term and start of next term - you are very well organised to be this far ahead! Many thanks for clarifying and sending on details for the other girls. It certainly makes life easier when return arrangements are sent in and you are one of the few agencies that does this; much appreciated!

Dear Georgie
Thank you for your letter.
I have read the letter word by word, and I also told to Shaobo's mother about your letter. We are unable to express our gratitude to you with words and really appreciate your so considerate care and help to Shaobo. And now we could put our minds at ease.
