Belgravia is a small and caring guardianship company that supports international students studying in the UK. Its lead guardian, Clare Heaton, has been hosting students for over 30 years and has looked after people from all over the world, including those from South Korea, Japan, Italy, Spain, Hong Kong, and many more. The Hong Kong office is led by Clare’s daughter Caroline Drewett, who has over a decade of experience in education, from teaching to running summer camps and holiday courses, to living in a boarding school.
The story of Belgravia Guardians begins with Caroline's fond childhood memories of sharing her home with students from around the world. From a young age, she understood that the experiences and cultural exchanges shared within one's home creates a lasting bond. To this day, Caroline remains in contact with some of the students whom she met many years ago.
Belgravia is rooted in its exceptional care in sending children abroad, and its history is a testament to the dedication shown to each and every child under its care.
PASTORAL CARE AT THE CORE
Belgravia Guardians, named after the area in which Caroline and her family have their home in London, is a close and friendly community with offices in both Hong Kong and the UK. Having lived and worked in Hong Kong for a number of years now, Caroline, her husband and two children, love the culture of Asia. She also has a unique experience of living within a boarding school environment, and especially of the pastoral support that all students require.
Caroline understands the challenges that families can face when sending their child overseas to study. Her experience permeates through the fibres of Belgravia’s mission, and each member of staff is imbued with the same passion for education and pastoral care. Caroline works closely with her staff in Hong Kong and the UK to share knowledge, best practice and coordinate effectively between schools, host families and parents. We aim to provide a truly personalised and boutique service.
