Day School Host Families

Day School Host Families

Where boarding school accommodation is not available or selected, we can arrange Day School Hosting whereby a student stays with a Host Family and enjoys the same lifestyle as any other day school student in the UK.

Our service includes finding and supporting a suitable Host Family for your child, 24/7 emergency cover, confirmation of transport arrangement for beginning and end of term, liaising with families to ensure all is going smoothly and offer advice where necessary.

Interested in Becoming a Guardian/Host Family?

Our team is always looking for new families to act as guardians or to host children attending local day and boarding schools. Children attending local day schools require full-time hosting, whereas children attending local boarding schools only need looking after in the holidays and over several ‘exeat’ weekends each year. Families will need to be homeowners and students will need a room with some space for clothing and a desk for studying.

If you are interested in becoming a Gabbitas Education Guardian/Host Family, please download and complete our Application form or complete the Contact Us form opposite.
