We understand that educating your child at a UK boarding school is a substantial investment for parents, and we do our best to keep guardianship fees and additional expenses to a minimum. Host family stays and transport are invoiced to parents at cost without additional charges, and we always arrange shared transport whenever possible.

Services included under Standard and Basic Guardianship are listed on our Guardianship Service page. Do feel free to contact us if you require a service which is not listed on the Guardianship Service page.

Basic Guardianship satisfies the statutory requirement for a UK guardian who is the 24 hour point of contact for school, pupil and parents in an emergency. It does not include a host family therefore is only suitable for students who are able to return home every half term holiday.
