Welcome to Pippa’s Guardians

Pippa’s Guardians provides an exclusive Guardianship service for students attending UK boarding schools and whose parents live overseas.

Our role is to create a strong working relationship between you as parents, your child, his or her school, and the host family who will be your child’s ‘home away from home’. (We’re the lynchpin if you like.)

We understand that communication across time zones, and in a foreign language, can be stressful for parents. With our support you can be confident that your child is safe and well cared for, that working relationships are strong and that communication is stress-free. We appreciate that concerns can be heightened by distance so we always respond promptly to student and parent needs. Our 24/7 Emergency contact number offers you round the clock peace of mind.

We take a genuine interest in the welfare of all the students we look after. Our approach is always to do what we would wish for our children were they studying on the other side of the world. This philosophy means that your son or daughter has someone close at hand with his or her best interests at heart.


Pippa’s Guardians Ltd is a well-established Guardianship Organisation, with a longstanding reputation for quality and excellence. It offers the highest standards of care to each one of its international students and enjoys fruitful, enduring relationships with all of its schools and homestays. Equally, overseas parents register high levels of satisfaction with the Guardianship Organisation’s personalised approach, confident that their child is well supported and nurtured.

It is important to us that you, as parents, trust us completely. You must be confident that we provide the highest possible standards in Guardianship and are at the forefront of best practice.

For this reason, we are members of, and accredited by, AEGIS (the Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students) and Ben Hughes is on the AEGIS Advisory Committee.


We very appreciate you put a lot of efforts on my sons at this past year, especially Ron! Can’t say any words to describe my past year feeling and very grateful you, Gill and Nigel be with us! Thank you for your support and caring! Please send my blessing to you and your family, and wish you have a wonderful Xmas holiday and fruitful year in 2019.

My two sons go to the UK at the age of ten. My thanks to Pippa’s Guardians is beyond description. Both kids grow both physically and mentally under her instruction. I strongly recommend anyone who wants to send their children overseas to Pippa’s Guardians.

I think that Pippa’s Guardians have been a great help to me and my family. My brother and I have been really well looked after and supported throughout our years by both Ben and Pippa Hughes throughout our time at boarding school. Any question was answered, helpful advice was given and any assistance was provided instantly and I am very thankful for that and it has helped me to gain a place at my University of choice.
