About Us

Give your child the advantage of the finest British education and set them on their path.

Coming to the UK for education can be an exciting start for any student but it is never an easy step.  

Part of your child’s success will be dependent on the school they attend, but equally important is the care and guidance they receive during the school period. It should be someone who really understands the British boarding school system who can offer this support throughout the student’s educational journey. We are here to tap into your child’s full potential and guide them through the journey to a top British university. 

We don’t provide just basic guardianship, i.e. airport transportation and home stay. Our holistic service starts from the point where you consider sending your child to the UK up to their successful entrance to their desired university.  

Our mission is to ensure that your child is given the advantage of the finest British education and to secure your child’s success. View our case studies for an insight into how families have found our service.

When it came to choosing a guardianship company, we had 2 recommendations (with competitive rates) from the school placement agency. However, after careful consideration, we went with Wisdom Spring Education on 9th August as I felt that they are more knowledgeable and experienced. Wisdom Spring provided all necessary preparation for Tiger straightaway whilst he was in China until Dr Wu accompanied him on his first day in his boarding school on 5th Sept.

Dr Wu and her team are very responsive and answers my queries on time bar the time difference and we have regular discussions regarding my son’s progression. When my son first started the boarding school, it was a big shock to him and needed time to adjust and plenty of guidance. I was very grateful for the professional advice given to my son by Wisdom Spring which really helped him.

Zijian has been studying in the UK for nearly a year and we are very happy with his progress. At the beginning, we were very worried about him as he never lived away from home and English was not his strongest subject.
