Guardian Schools

Guardian Schools – All the Support Your Child Needs

Guardian schools take care of your child when you send them to study in the UK. However, in addition to the school, they also require an education guardian to act as their personal guardian in case of emergency. But these guardians are usually much more than just an emergency contact.

When sending your children to live in the UK, boarding schools require you to find a guardian actually living in the UK. To solve this problem, many international parents pay for AEGIS guardianship, through a company approved by the organisation AEGIS. Guardians sourced this way are more than a name on a piece of paper that states they will be there in an emergency. And what’s more, you should find that a good service that goes far beyond this, providing academic and well-being support for your child. A good guardian should work hard alongside the school to make sure that your child is not only fulfilling their academic potential, but is happy, and well both physically and emotionally. During term time, they should be in continuous contact with the school, monitoring your child’s progress and reporting back to you, the parent. You should also make sure to find an option whereby the guardian visits your child face to face. This will give them an opportunity to talk to your child, not only reinforcing support for them, but doubly checking whether they are truly safe and well. Ideally you should find a guardian that will visit your child at least once during term time.

At Academic Guardians UK, we visit your child personally at least once per term, and give our 100% in supporting the well-being of your child at their guardian schools. Just go to our website to see for yourself. You can also phone 0203 515 8880, or email info@academic-guardians.co.uk with any queries.

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.
