Welcome to Cotswold Guardians

Cotswold Guardians is a premier homestay guardianship agency, caring for international students in private schools across the United Kingdom. The agency was set up in 2004 by Anne Sharp to meet a growing need for a caring, professional and personal service for students studying in the United Kingdom. Ten years later, Anne continues to help a growing number of students feel at home in the UK.

“My main aim is to welcome students to England and provide them with the care and security of a loving family where they can relax within the safe environment of an English home.”
     Anne Sharp, Proprietor of Cotswold Guardians

Cotswold Guardians has recently gained Aegis accreditation as a result of the very high standard of overseas guardianship we offer. Our strengths lie in well-planned individual care with our efficient systems keeping pupils, parents, host families and schools very well informed and aware that support is always available.

It is highly recommended under this present climate that all international students appoint a legal guardian, unless the school specifies otherwise. Cotswold Guardians is the legal guardian of the international students in its care and ensures that the students' pastoral needs are met by the homestay hosts appointed.
