What is a guardian family and why does my child need one?
All British boarding schools insist that any pupil whose parents are resident outside the UK has a UK-based guardian, appointed by their parents, to act as the local in-country contact in case of emergency and to ensure that the child is well cared for at exeat weekends and half term holidays, if they are not planning to return home.

Our support for your child
We have a policy of one overseas child with one family so you can rest assured that the family will give your child the support that they need in order to achieve their full potential whilst studying in the UK.
Your child will remain with the same guardian family throughout their time with us, meaning long-lasting, trusting relationships will grow as they progress through their time at school. Indeed many children come to see their guardian as their ‘English’ family. Check our code of conduct.
