Guardianship is a legal requirement for any child under the age of 16 in the UK. Boarding schools will look after their students during term time, while the child is on site, under their care. However, during exeat weekends, half terms, or end of term holidays, the School will pass over responsibility to the child's educational guardian. 

Clare Heaton is our Lead Guardian, meaning that she will always be on hand in case of an emergency. However, because we value excellence in pastoral care, we have a network of Area Parents, who are spread around the country to ensure that there is someone close to your child at all times. This helps you to feel comfortable knowing that your child will always have someone to call, should any emergencies arise. 


Belgravia can do as much or as little as you would like. Almost all schools require their non-UK based students to have a guardianship company on board, even if there are close family living nearby.


However, many of our children prefer us to help not just with the legalities of studying abroad, but with the practicalities and logistics. This could be anything from ordering amenities for your child's arrival, to meeting them at the airport when they land in the UK, to helping them buy school uniform or sports equipment. 

If you aren't sure what to go for, please just speak to a member of our Hong Kong team and we will be able to assist you and explain what's included in each package. 


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

We have four options, ranging from paper, through silver to gold and platinum. 

Every student is unique, and every situation is different, so we have options to suit everyone. 

Clare Heaton, lead guardian of Belgravia Guardians, has experience of living abroad herself, as well as her two children living abroad, and 30 years of hosting experience.
