AEGIS Guardians

AEGIS Accredited Educational Guardianship Services

Living Learning English Guardianship 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 over 25 years 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 or university during term-time and are allocated with one of our home tuition teachers as a host who provides accommodation, care and supervision as required, particularly during exeat weekends and half-term holidays. This ensures that we are working with professional families, which is much appreciated by students and parents. Pupils can return home to spend the long holidays at Christmas, Easter and Summer with their parents, or we can arrange for stays in the UK.

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.


This guardianship organisation is highly professional and well organised, its name embodies all that it aims for with its students to enable them to have a holistic living and learning experience of English.
