About us

Since its foundation in 2006, English Guardian has become one of the leading guardianship organisations in the UK catering to needs of international students from all over the world. Over there years we have been able to develop close ties with hundreds of UK boarding schools, a strong network of host families across the country, a pool of drivers, tutors, medical and other specialists who, together with us, will make life of your child in a British boarding school a very positive experience. Whether it is arranging comfortable accommodation or transfer, or organising premium-level academic support, we have solutions for every student.

Our work, procedures and staff members have been thoroughly inspected and accredited by AEGIS (the Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students) which certifies quality for our service. Key qualities we seek for in all our staff members are passion towards education and helping young people maximise their potential, compassion and real interest in a child’s development. For this reason, you can always be confident that whatever the matter is, it will be dealt with the greatest care and best possible outcome for your child in mind. We are here to become not only administrative assistants but also mentors and friends.

Having someone who is efficient and a pleasure to deal with is also important for the school in their day-to-day work with your child. Very often a guardian becomes an official representative of the family, a main point of contact for the school, thus a decision on whom to appoint should be made considerately.
