WHY UK GUARDIANS?

Founded in 2012, UK Guardians has become one of the leading Guardianship organisations. Placing hundreds of students into UK boarding and day schools since. UK Guardians head office is located on the south coast in Dorset UK and has many local coordinators based around the UK supporting children in all of our partner schools.

We offer a unique and bespoke tailored services in all aspects of student guardianship and independent education.

Our main aim is ensuring all students have a safe and enjoyable time in the UK, while reaching their full academic potential.

WHY CHOOSE US?

We are different, we concentrate on the small details. Like all Guardianship companies we will keep your child safe and support him or her in an efficient, timely way. But our commitment extends beyond that to the broader support we will give your child in achieving his or her potential. It might be arranging a quiet host family in the holiday before exams or providing extra tutors to help with homework. It could something as simple as ordering new clothes or going to watch a sports event or performance. It might simply be a question of storing luggage and large musical instruments over the summer holiday. We will always do what we can to ensure life is straightforward and uncomplicated for all.

Our aim is to do what others do but do it better, we all care about all of our students we look after and always go the extra mile.

A Trusted Guardianship

Choosing to study abroad is a very important and life changing decision and it can take time for many students to feel comfortable in their new surroundings. We believe that by developing strong and trusting relationships with the students in our care, they will gain the most out of their experience in the UK. Students’ welfare is a top priority and all students are assigned a dedicated Guardian Angel and given an emergency phone number which is available 24/7.

“I always get warm care from UK Guardians you are always very helpful. I have been focussing on my exams these days, I have got good results in all my subjects”
