Harbour House Guardianships Awarded Preliminary Accreditation

We are pleased to welcome Harbour House Guardianships as a Preliminary Accredited Member of AEGIS! This means all the essential requirements are in place in order to care for international students.

Based in Bath and founded in 2019, the Director has valuable knowledge and insight as she is a parent originally from Hong Kong who sent her own children to boarding school in the UK.

The lead inspector commented, “The Director communicates regularly with students, parents, homestays and schools, and this helps ensure that students’ needs are fully met. It is apparent that their welfare is of the utmost importance.”

Preliminary Accreditation is a rigorous process and open to all guardianship organisations or sole guardians of any size. Guardians can even apply before they recruit students. This level ensures that the essential standards are in place in order to provide safe guardianship. Preliminary Accreditation involves scrutiny of documents, policies and safer recruitment checks.
