Our Educational Guardians

We have limitless access to resources and expertise in the world of education.

Why choose our guardians

With a wealth of experience and access to the finest resources in international education, Carfax Guardians promises the very best support for your child and complete peace of mind for you. We provide comprehensive guardianship and pastoral services for pupils studying at British boarding schools, and whose parents live overseas. Practical support for foreign students at British universities is also offered.

What is guardianship?

Schools, universities and colleges expect any child under 18 years of age to have an appointed guardian. Schools will contact the guardian on regular basis with any information or queries related to the student, including health, wellbeing and holiday arrangements.

What guardians do?

When children study away from home, they need a stable, safe, and worry-free environment to thrive. Carfax Guardians represent your child in a foreign country and arrange access to those important provisions that children need in everyday life.

Host families

Our host families offer an exciting and valuable opportunity to integrate into British culture, learn about traditions, experience the local way of life and most importantly, allow your child to feel at home away from home.

Other Services

We have limitless access to resources and expertise in the world of education.
