Cobham Hall School

About Us

We offer professional guardianship services in almost all boarding schools in UK.  

We are located in the South East of England, in the town of Sevenoaks,  with easy access to boarding schools in Kent, Surrey, Sussex, Essex and around London. We also work with schools in Oxford, Cambridge, Bristol and York.
Irina Bowman, our Managing Director, is an experienced educational consultant and guardian. Over the past 20 years she has been focusing on school placement and guardianship and established close connections with many boarding schools. She works with a team of consultants, guardians and  host families, and between them they have an extensive knowledge of boarding schools and the way the private educational system works in UK. Irina has many years of experience working with Russian speaking parents and students and is invaluable to them.

Haoli Zhang, our boarding school placement advisor, is focusing on Chinese speaking students. Haoli has an excellent understanding of British and Chinese cultures and education systems and works with Chinese speaking families.

Once a student is registered with us, he or she will come under the immediate guardianship of one of our consultants, who will be the main point of contact for a student, parents, school and host family for all matters arising.

​We are AEGIS registered and going through the accreditation process.

We place international students to private boarding schools as well as to language schools. For more information on UK Language Schools and UK Universities please visit our website

My Guardians is an English UK Partner Agency. This means that we have developed successful partnerships with a number of English UK member centres, are engaged with the work of English UK and adhere to the principles of their agency code of conduct.

'We have always found My Guardians staff to be very professional in all of their dealings with us and we have always appreciated the interest they have taken in the welfare and progress of the students that they have placed with us'. Mr C. Osbourn,  Admissions Registrar St. Clare's Oxford.
