Are you interested in hosting an international student?
White House Guardians (WHG) is a family-run company based in Bournemouth that for 30 years has been caring for international students aged 7-18 studying at schools across the UK. Last year, we were guardians to students from 44 different countries who stayed for varying lengths of time, from one week to full academic years.
A big part of our students’ experience is living with a British host family. We are constantly looking for host families who would like to take in our international students, and offer them a 'home away from home'. The majority of our students are in boarding schools and require host families during half terms in October, February and May. From time to time, we also have day school students who live with host families for the whole duration of their time in the UK.
Our local guardian Lydie Pratt has been looking after our students and our host families for 20 years. Lydie organises the placement of our students into host families and is the main contact for all our families in the area. We'd be delighted to hear from you if you would like to know more about becoming a WHG host family and welcoming some of our students into your home.
Visit White House Guardians, or ring Lydie on 07870 113314 for more information.
