Agents and Guardians

Agents

Giggleswick School works with a number of Agents or Educational Consultants in various countries. These are companies who provide advice and information about studying in the schools they represent in the UK.

 

If you would like help in finding an agent who works with Giggleswick School, please contact our Admissions Office for more information.

 

Guardians

Parents of pupils who live outside the EU must appoint a suitable adult to act as an education guardian whilst the pupil is in the United Kingdom. The education guardian takes responsibility for the pupil when they are not at school. If a suitable education guardian is not appointed, the school, acting on the authority of the parents, may appoint a guardianship agency to find a host family.

 

Whilst parents will remain the first line of communication as far as matters of serious illness or discipline are concerned, the role of the Guardian is an extremely important one. In particular the School expects Guardians to fulfill key responsibilities.
