Regent Guardians is run by Helen Collier; a parent who understands the importance of nurture and care for children of all ages.

Helen combines this with exceptional qualifications having completed a postgraduate teacher training course (PGCE) at the start of her teaching career and, more recently, being awarded a Diploma in Boarding Practice (Leadership) from the Boarding Schools Association (BSA).

She has more than 20 years’ experience in international education, having been Housemistress, Head of Boarding, Deputy Head & Assistant Principal in boarding schools in East Africa and across the UK until 2017.

By 2018 Helen had branched out into Guardianship having gained a clear appreciation of the scale and type of care and support needed by international boarding students, their parents, schools and colleges.

Communication is at the heart of Regent Guardians philosophy and Helen endeavours to ensure that all stakeholders are kept fully informed of developments so that everyone can share in a young person’s progress and best support them by working together in a caring and coordinated manner. Looking after the whole person is also vital to success and Regent Guardians, through its personal and friendly approach, seeks to develop meaningful and open relationships with both the students and their parents so that an honest and supportive dialogue can take place.

Helen is highly experienced and appropriately trained in safeguarding matters. She is the Designated Safeguarding Lead for Regent Guardians.
