With My Guardians, you’re in good hands.
My Guardians is a well-established, trusted company providing educational consultancy and guardianship for overseas students in British boarding schools. Our location in Kent means that we have easy access to a wide range of schools in the South East of England and are near London for international flights.
As educational consultants, we provide professional school placement services, helping international parents to find the best school for their children.
In our role as educational guardians, we act in loco-parentis in emergencies, check in regularly with our students at school, and represent their parents at Parents’ Evenings. We also take responsibility for our students’ care during the exeat weekends and holidays.
I’m Irina, the founder and managing director of My Guardians, which I established in 1993 to provide practical, emotional and academic support for overseas students and their parents. Along with my team, who I’ve selected for their expertise, care and dedication, we have established strong working relationships with parents abroad, UK boarding schools and host families. We get to know our students very well to cater to their individual needs, emotionally and academically. As a result, our families often stay with us for many years, as younger siblings also come over to England under our guardianship.
We are a boutique consultancy, choosing to work with a small number of students each year to ensure that each child receives the personal support and attention they need and deserve. With My Guardians, your children are in the best possible hands regarding the first-class education they will receive and the warmth, interest and genuine care we provide.
My Guardians is accredited by AEGIS, the Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students. We are Gold Standard members, a prestigious accolade, showing that we meet the highest requirements for safeguarding and the well-being of the students under our care.
We welcome students from all over the world.
My Guardians successfully meets its’ aims to set high standards of care and aspiration, with safeguarding and communication to all, a key part’. ‘This is a small agency that caters for a small number of students, offering a highly personalised service. It is very highly rated by the students, families and schools it operates with, who are all extremely happy and highly positive about the services received. Strong and regular communication is at the heart of all that it does.': Vivien Sergeant, Lead Inspector, AEGIS (June 2021).
