All international students studying at any good UK boarding school or college are required to have guardian. A guardian acts in loco parentis by caring for the child independently of the school or college. 

Help with travel to and from the school, checking that the child is happy and settled, talking to teachers and house staff, going to the school parents’ meetings, sports matches or plays, offering a happy and safe home if the child has to leave school for any reason: the guardian is there to help that individual child just like a caring parent. 


Dukes Guardians offers a single outstanding service for a single fee. There is no variation in quality when it comes to the care and safeguarding of your child. 

Our fee includes everything except optional homestay, transport and extra visits.  These costs are shown in our Parents’ Handbook.
