Most boarding schools in the UK require all their students whose families live overseas to have a Guardian who is a resident of the UK. Whilst at school, the housemaster or housemistress will take responsibility for the students academic progress and welfare. There are times, however, during the term and more especially outside of term time when the school must be able to hand over these responsibilities to a properly appointed guardian.
Responsibilities of the guardian will vary between guardians and organisations.
At James-Lee Consultancy, the responsibilities of the guardian include:
James-Lee Consultancy (JLC) is an AEGIS accredited guardianship organisation. We will ensure that your client has a successful stay in the UK - both academically and personally! We offer bespoke guardianship packages to make sure the student's every need is met.
JLC has local coordinators available within the areas students under our guardianship are located. These local coordinators are supported by the head office, located in London. JLC employs a multilingual staff for ease of communication and make sure that all relevant parties are updated on a regular basis.
We will act as a partner to you, the parents living overseas, to ensure the safety, well-being and success of the your child during their time in the UK.
