Heritage is a caring, family organisation specialising in providing a professional guardianship service to overseas children from around the world who are studying in the United Kingdom at Independent Boarding Schools, Colleges and Universities.
Our service delivers an invaluable link between your family, the school or university and your child.
Heritage Guardianship understand that studying abroad can be a daunting process for both the parents of international students and the children themselves which is why we offer comprehensive advice and support throughout the guardianship process.
During The Pandemic
Covid-19 has been challenging for everyone but particularly for those children away from home. Throughout the pandemic Heritage has given unwavering support and reassurance to the children in our care and will continue to do so. We have provided quarantine and self-isolation with Heritage families as well as looking after children throughout the summer months who were unable to return home due to the closing of borders or quarantine restrictions. For those children who have been able to travel to and from the UK we have organised innumerable pre-flight tests and accompanied many children to and from the airports to help ensure smooth and safe journeys home.
Why Choose Heritage?
As a founder member of the Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students (AEGIS), Heritage offers a comprehensive guardianship service to the families of overseas students, which includes excellent pastoral support and appropriate guidance to the children and their parents during term time.
Our service also extends outside of term time and as part of our service we ensure that all our Heritage families provide our children with a comfortable, secure environment during holiday and exeat periods too.
The Role of a Guardian
Boarding Schools require children from Europe and Overseas to appoint a responsible guardian permanently based in the UK. This must be someone capable of dealing effectively with practical, pastoral and educational issues throughout the academic year.
What Others Think
A Guardianship Service You Can Trust
Heritage is a successful guardianship organisation. Many of the children we look after have been recommended to us by parents and friends of children previously in our care. We are proud of our reputation and the long and enduring relationships we enjoy with our young people and their parents.
Having provided a guardianship service for over twenty years we consider ourselves educational consultants as well as providing a guardianship service. We offer families independent advice on the best boarding schools, colleges and Universities for any overseas student. Whether your child is starting out at an independent boarding school or is heading off to university we can offer in depth advice on all aspects of the guardianship process, ensuring that both you and your child feel comfortable that they’re in the best hands whilst away from home.
