Educational Guardianship Services

Living Learning English offers a complete Educational Guardianship Service which complements our English language course provision and provides support, care and supervision for overseas students studying at boarding schools in the UK to ensure that their stay is safe, enjoyable and beneficial.

At Living Learning English, we have had many years of experience in the teaching and care of young students overseas and we have developed a comprehensive Educational Guardianship Service which is flexible and adapted to suit the needs and supervision required by each pupil.

Guardianship pupils attend boarding school during term-time and are allocated with a host family who provide accommodation, care and supervision as required, particularly during exeat weekends and half term holidays. Pupils usually return home to spend the long holidays at Christmas, Easter and Summer with their parents, although we can arrange for stays in the UK if necessary.

Whilst your child is in the UK, Living Learning English is their appointed educational guardian and our top priority is ensuring that they are safe, happy and making good personal and academic progress.

Safeguarding: Living Learning English is committed to safeguarding the welfare of every Young Learner in its care.  Read our full safeguarding policy here
