Become a host family for an international student studying at a UK boarding school near you.
Each year thousands of foreign school-age pupils are educated in independent schools across the UK. When their school closes for term breaks and exeat weekends they need a great host family to offer them a home away from home.
Pippa’s Guardians has been providing quality guardianship services to international students for 25 years and understands the value of a good home and how a host family can positively impact a student’s wellbeing.
Becoming a host family with Pippa’s Guardians is not only a generous payment but also a wonderful experience. offering the opportunity to really move a student whilst studying here in the UK, in many cases far from home.
The families we are looking for are hospitable and interested in other cultures. Having children of similar ages helps but is not the most important thing as we have many successful host families who have no children, younger children or even older children who have left home. Being part of a family and experiencing family life enriches students’ learning and helps improve their English language skills.
It can be very exciting and interesting for children from host families to get to know other children who have had completely different life experiences than you. For families where children have grown up and left home, it’s a chance to enjoy the fun and camaraderie of having younger people back in the home.
Anne Weir recently accepted a student from Singapore. “She was a pleasure to host, polite, helpful and a pleasure to have around. She worked hard on her schoolwork and the practical work she did for her food technology degree. She even cooked us a three course meal as part of her schoolwork which was a huge hit.”
Our students come from all over the world. It’s a wonderful and interesting way to learn about the cultures, traditions and daily life of young people and their families from countries very different from ours and it’s a great way to earn extra money. Many of our host families form lifelong friendships with our students and their families, staying in touch even after they leave school for university.
Pupils live at their boarding schools during school terms and most travel home to their families for the longer holidays such as summer, Christmas and Easter. The majority of students therefore only need accommodation during the semester breaks and occasionally on weekends. Our local area managers look after our students during term time and are close by to support you while your student stays at your home.
