Welcome to Guardians UK

Guardians UK provides a complete guardianship service to students from Prep School through to University.

As a small Guardianship agency we pride ourselves on the personal service we offer. We make sure our students know us well and feel supported and secure. We understand how strange and new everything can feel when students first arrive in the UK.

We are based at Taunton School and look after students throughout the South West, with a large number of host families in this area and London.

Guardians UK has recently undergone an inspection by AEGIS  (The Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students).  The aim of AEGIS is to ensure quality in guardianship provision and we have fully satisfied their accreditation criteria achieving Gold Standard.

AEGIS Covid Safe Charter


This Charter serves to advise schools and overseas parents on the response from AEGIS and our member guardianship organisations relating to the current Covid-19 crisis. This relates to support services being offered to international students enrolled at UK boarding schools and who are under the guardianship of AEGIS members.

Guardianship organisations which have adopted the AEGIS Covid-19 Safe Charter confirm that they will comply with government and Public Health England guidance and support the return of international students to the UK.
