Guardianship & Pastoral Support

A UK guardian is required by the majority of UK boarding schools for overseas pupils. A guardian will be the first contact point for the child and their school when an emergency situation arises. They are responsible for international students while they are not in school or unaccompanied.

Guardianship is also required for visa purpose for international students under 18.

How it works

Drivers are all enhanced DBS checked and hold a clean driving licence.

The majority of our host families are professionals and have their own children. Your child will be able to make friends with family children and develop their social skills by being part of a British family.

When immediate care or support is needed by your child, you know that we are there looking after them on behalf of you.

Tiger’s dad
Parent
Cottesmore School
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.
