Regent Guardians looks after international students attending boarding school in the UK as if they were our own children.
Part of what we do is to find welcoming and caring host families for our students for short periods of time, for example at the start and end of terms, for occasional weekends, periods of work experience or for half term holidays.
Our host families create a lasting and enriching relationship with a young person from another country.
A family can come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. They may have young or school aged children of their own; they may be an older couple whose children have left home; they may be single. But they will all have been fully checked and trained by us so that they feel confident in offering a supportive home from home to each child.
We always match the host family and the student individually as part of the outstanding service we offer and we try to use the same host family each time that the student needs to stay away from school, so that host and child build up a strong positive relationship. We will always be on call to support the host family as well as the student.

We have enjoyed the experience of Hosting with the organisation. Helen has proved to be helpful and informative. The student we hosted was a pleasant and easy going young lady which made the whole thing a wonderful experience for us all. The organisation is efficient, which made the whole experience easy. I would recommend being a host family as you gain so much insight into other cultures and the life of your student guest.
My stay with one of the host family for my work experience week was superb. Fortunately, Regent Guardians was able to find me a suitable host who was glad to drive me from their home to my workplace venue and back every day. Not only that, the hospitality they offered was second to none. This is the reason why I stayed with the same family for my next enrichment week as well.
