a bridge between parent and school

All good boarding schools and colleges in the UK insist on international students, whatever their age, having a guardian.

A guardian represents a student’s parents by caring for the child independently of the school or college, doing everything that a parent would do if they were in the UK. Help with travel to and from the school, checking that the child is happy and settled, talking to teachers and house staff, going to the school parents’ meetings, sports matches or plays, offering a happy and safe home if the child has to leave school for any reason: the guardian is there to help that individual child just like a caring parent.

guardianship for students of all ages

Having a responsible adult separate from the school, to ensure that students are happy and progressing academically, is crucial for the best possible educational experience.

This is particularly important for teenagers who are experiencing pressure from significant exams, as well as exploring their own independence more than ever before.

Regent Guardians provides parents with the reassurance and communication they need to know their child is safe and doing well.

We are here to support you.

aims, principles & practice

Regent Guardians cares for your child as if they were our own.  We act as the bridge between parents and school: liaising with both, caring for students, and making practical arrangements, all of which enable your child to thrive.

By spending time getting to know your child, meeting up with them regularly and maintaining contact with them, we respond quickly and effectively to their needs, to your requests, to the school and in support of our Host Families.

Regent Guardians staff always act professionally to support all our stakeholders and foster genuine friendships with those in our care.
