Based in the beautiful city of Bristol, Berkeley Guardians’ aim is to ensure your child receives the best care possible. We offer a very personal service and a family-centred approach. We have a wealth of experience in dealing with guardians for international pupils, education and academic issues. Internship opportunities and quality homestays are also available through us.
Based in Bristol
Bristol has two universities – the traditional University of Bristol and the newer, but highly acclaimed, University of the West of England. Both offer an enormous range of courses at a high level and can be accessed through the UCAS application service.
If you are sight-seeing in Bristol, the choice is vast. Whether on the water front, discovering the old centre of the city, the village suburbs or the eclectic mix of shops and cafes. Bristol Zoo where the conservation work is world-renowned. The museums, the Bristol Aquarium or the science exploration at We Are Curious. On the sporting front, Bristol City football and Bristol Rugby or Gloucestershire County cricket club are all accessible.
Why use an Educational Guardianship?
Most well established schools require all young people coming into the United Kingdom for more than 12 weeks to have a guardian. Guardians will be there to care for that child when required. This guardian is in addition to the school you choose for your son/daughter and will ensure that there is “wrap around care” offered outside of the school terms, in the exeats and at weekends as required.
When they need it the most
At Berkeley Guardians we ensure your son or daughter receives the support they need throughout their time in the UK. Their guardian will always be there to support and guide them when they need it the most – family-centred approach! Whether that is on an educational front, proactively supporting them with their academic subjects, or whether they need emotional or pastoral support in which case we will do all we can to support in a practical level. We really want to give your child a “home from home” experience and to know that Berkeley Guardians will be there for them when they need it most.
The personal touch
At Berkeley Guardians we work as a family; caring for the pupils in our care with the commitment and dedication you would expect as parents handing your children over to our team. These supporting and caring values are also shared by the schools and host families with which we work.
We also understand how difficult it is for some children to settle into a new and very different environment and our aim is to make this as easy as possible and to give you, as parents, peace of mind.
