- helping parents choose the best private preparatory or pre-preparatory school for their child

Fantastic fantastic fantastic! He absolutely loves it there and he is so happy. We have received a wonderful report and he loves the new headmaster. He has made some gorgeous friends and so far he has seen absolutely no bullying!! He has thrown himself into school life and to be honest he has done more at X in two months then he ever did during the three years at Y! Thank you so much and if you ever have any parents interested I would be only too willing to talk to them.

Finding a Trustworthy Guardian

You have come to our website for help in finding and choosing the best prep school. International parents will usually need to appoint a Guardian locally for their child(ren) and schools will NOT perform this service themselves. If you need help in finding a trustworthy Guardian close to your chosen school, then try this expert advice service.

What is a Guardian?

UK Law mandates that foreign residents must appoint a Guardian for each child receiving full time education in the UK.

The Guardian will accept legal responsibility for the child and also has the power to take decisions regarding emergency medical treatment as well as registering the child with a local family doctor. A Guardian also provides the child with a place to live in the case of school holidays, exeats (periodic closures of the school in term time), illness or school expulsion.

Guardianship Services

In addition to the legal requirements Guardians often perform many other services, such as:

- Liaising with school on academic or pastoral problems
- Supervision of child’s finances
- Travel and airport transfers
- Purchasing school uniform
- Home stay before or after terms
- Excursions and holidays
- Accompanying child to dentist or optician

The costs of a Guardian can be anywhere from £1500 to £5000 per annum, depending on the quality of the firm and the services you need.

There are numerous firms of guardianship companies with variable degrees of service and reputation. Let us find you a trustworthy firm which also suits your budget.

So how does it work? will put you in touch with a Guardianship company operating in the area near your target school. These are all independent experienced firms and they are not owned by us.
