Essential Guardianship is for students of any nationality looking for 24/7 emergency support whilst at boarding school. It is the perfect package for students who do not require regular hosting with host family accommodation. Essential Guardianship allows students and their families to engage with our services in their own language (including Mandarin and Cantonese), and on a Hong Kong or China timezone.

As the majority of UK schools require overseas students to have a UK based guardian, our Essential Guardianship gives parents reassurance that there is always someone available for 24/7 support, opening up the full range of emergency care Belgravia services.


We pride ourselves on a professional service which covers all the essential needs at an economical cost, without any reduction in safety.



Registration fee: £195

Annual fee: £1250

Expenses account: £1000

All of our guardians and host families have extensive hosting experience. Many have children of their own, or a background in pastoral care and residential provision for oversees students. At Belgravia, we welcome you and your child into our family and wider network of expertise.

Contact us to find out which of our guardianship packages would best suit you and your child. 

Every student is unique, and every situation is different, so we have options to suit everyone. We support enrolment throughout the academic year though many join us in June and summer months before starting in September.


Our guardianship services offer value for any family and we invest our time into making sure that this is the case. Our approach is based on research and listening to the students that we look after to ensure that their experience is the best it can be.
