What is an Educational Guardianship?

An educational guardian is a requirement for international students under 18 years of age studying in the UK. Although, there is no UK law that relates to international students at UK boarding schools, in order to satisfy UKVI (The UK Visa & Immigration) regulations and meet safeguarding standards, the majority of UK boarding schools and colleges insist upon it. At YES Guardians we offer individualised guardianship packages tailored to the students individual, welfare and educational needs.

Once appointed, the guardian or guardianship organisation is responsible for the student whilst in the UK and when the school might be closed. Guardians also step in in the event of an emergency.

Happy & safe students are our priority, and this is where YES Guardians can help you achieve peace of mind about your children while they study here in the UK.

We genuinely believe we offer a personal touch Guardianship service this is second to none of any other in the UK.

AEGIS Accreditation

As there is no current legislation, parents and schools should be sure to trust their Guardian. As ultimately they are responsible for their students/loved ones whilst here in the UK. We have worked very hard to ensure we are AEGIS accredited – meaning we have been thoroughly, and impartially audited as an approved Guardianship service.

AEGIS is the Association for the Education & Guardianship for International Students.

Their framework, and approval offers peace of mind that by choosing us, you have the stamp of approval from an ISI Trained inspector.

Yes Guardians are excellent and provide great services

When we decided that our 16 year old daughter would attend boarding school in the UK, we were excited and immediately nervous about how she would be cared for while there. We found Yes Guardians and worked with Hayley & Marc Harris to understand how their services could help us. We are so glad we did. They have made things so much easier for us and the genuine care they have for my daughter has helped immensely. They are proactive in their communications and they put our daughters well being and safety at the top of the priority list. They've arranged transportation to and from the airport, they've helped as our daughter navigated things with her host family and most of all, they are always there no matter what or when you need them. We couldn't be happier with our relationship with them. I wouldn't hesitate using them again or recommending them to anyone needing a guardian program. They're the best.

Every Need Met

Home stay for school holidays and exeat weekends. 

Over night boarding at school might not be possible for every student. The school itself may be at capacity and not have space for overnight boarders or the student may be more suited to living in a family home from home environment. 

We take care of everything for the students from transport to school, extra curricula lessons such as dance or drama, private tuition and work experience. 

Students will feel like part of our YES Guardians family, joining us for fun days out at the weekend. We will also ensure that there is plenty of time for study and school work supporting the students with their academia. 


We Love Food

Everything we eat is home made. Delicious and always nutritious. We enjoy food from all around the world. We can also cater for any dietary requirement.

Advice on good local take away food is also welcomed, and provisioned on request from the Student or Student’s family.

If it’s your birthday or special cultural celebration we will cook up a treat and celebrate with you. We are always interested ourselves in learning more about other cultures.


Home from home Environment

We can host any combination of Students, and can accommodate friendship groups, as well as encouraging students to meet peers with common interests.

Their surroundings in a host family should be warm, friendly and enhance their stay in the UK.


close to things to do.

The Host Family should be able to provide transport to and either get the Student Involved with Family Life or offer them advice on things to do.

Whether this is taking them into a Town, or showing them where the local supermarket is to walk to, we encourage a non isolated environment so the Student can be slightly independent, as well as having the close support from the Host Family.
