Bristol host families needed for international students studying in the South West


Are you a loving family who could offer “home from home” facilities at weekends and half-term to international students while getting paid to do so?

Guardians International Support is a small family guardianship company currently looking for Bristol host families who can offer a warm and welcoming environment to students studying at local boarding schools.

Guardians International Support is the UK’s fastest growing guardianship organisation with its directors having over 25 years experience of operating within the UK’s boarding school sector.


It arranges host families for international students studying at leading boarding schools in the South West, including Kings Taunton, Wells Cathedral School, Royal Hospital School Bath to mention but a few!

For families wishing to host GIS international students it is a straightforward process. GIS carry out an informal interview on the phone and then conduct a more in-depth interview and home check at the potential host family’s home.

Once DBS checks and enhanced disclosure are carried out, the host family is matched with an international student, with regular support and communication provided to the host family throughout the student’s stay.


If you would like to be a host family to an international student, please email to find out more.
