Our GLCs act as mentors to our students and are an extension of our guardianship team. They live within one hour of students' schools and are responsible for attending parent evenings, school functions and tending to any emergencies should they arise.
A sample profile of our Host Family and GLCs based in Yorkshire:
Sarah and James White were born in Yorkshire, and now live in the north of the county with their two children Harry and Issie. They have been partnering with James-Lee Consultancy for over three years and are the GLC for Yorkshire.
“We both come from rural backgrounds and love hosting the children, introducing them to our lifestyle and welcoming them into our family home. The children enjoy meeting them, making new friends and learning about different cultures” – James White
Our Host Families are an extension of the care and support your child will receive; they play a very important role in providing students with a happy and memorable experience. Host families provide accommodation for both short and long term students including both younger, which have purchased our guardianship package, and older independent students. For younger students, the host family will provide full board during weekend breaks, half term, public and other holiday periods and half board when the student is not present during the day. Older students have the option of both 'bed and breakfast' (B&B) and half board (HB) host family accommodation. We are highly selective with Host Families we choose and all applicants go through a rigorous recruitment process.
All of our drivers are DBS checked and undergo an extensive safer recruitment process. Our drivers are experienced and offer friendly and professional service. When transported by our drivers, the student, parent or legal guardian and the school are provided with our driver’s contact information. As well as British drivers, we currently have Chinese drivers who can speak Mandarin and Cantonese.
We have experienced and qualified tutors available to provide students with the help and support they need outside of school. All subjects, from 11+, GCSE's and A levels, are covered by our tutors. Contact us now for more information.
