Dukes Guardians

a bridge between parent and school

All good boarding schools and colleges in the UK insist on international students, whatever their age, having a guardian.

A guardian represents a student’s parents by caring for the child independently of the school or college, doing everything that a parent would do if they were in the UK. Help with travel to and from the school, checking that the child is happy and settled, talking to teachers and house staff, going to the school parents’ meetings, sports matches or plays, offering a happy and safe home if the child has to leave school for any reason: the guardian is there to help that individual child just like a caring parent.

Guardianship for students of all ages

Having a responsible adult separate from the school, to ensure that students are happy and progressing academically, is crucial for the best possible educational experience.

This is particularly important for teenagers who are experiencing pressure from significant exams, as well as exploring their own independence more than ever before.

Dukes Guardians provides parents with the reassurance and communication they need to know their child is safe and doing well.


We are here to support you.
