COVID-safe host families, drivers and Christmas programmes

AEGIS Covid-19 Safe Charter


  • Bright World is proud to hold gold standard accreditation with AEGIS and fully upholds the AEGIS Covid-19 Safe Charter.

  • Following the safe return of our students this Autumn, we are busy ensuring our students stay safe during the school holiday times. Our host families, drivers, and residential staff are putting in place additional precautions to keep students safe during these times when they are away from school.

Relax & Revise @ Christmas

  • Bright World has teamed up with Kings Education to offer Relax & Revise @ Christmas for international students who need to stay in the UK during the Winter break.

  • The programme is available at Padworth College and aims to deliver a festive welcome in a Covid-Safe environment.

  • Relax & Revise @ Christmas in Cambridge is open exclusively to those students who are registered with Bright World Guardianships.

our values and mission statement

Bright World's mission is to keep our students safe while they are here and to improve the quality of our service and standards as we grow. We are committed to safeguarding student welfare and undertake rigorous checks on all who work with us and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

At Bright World we have a clear Child Protection strategy and try to find ways to "do what others do but to do it better".

some facts and figures

Bright World was founded in 2000 and has been guardian to over 10,000 students since our inception. We are now delighted to be helping the children of some of our original clients and supporting them through their academic career in the UK.

We have been accredited by AEGIS, The Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students since 2006. Bright World is a gold standard member, offering guardianship at the highest standard possible in the UK.

Experience is priceless and the results of our 2017 AEGIS Re-inspection are testament to this. We are proud of the high percentage of our customers who choose Bright World every year of their child's education in the UK. We are also proud of our close partnerships with boarding schools across the UK who recognise our programmes and recommend us to their parents as a safe pair of hands.

Bright World - brighter future

We want to reduce our carbon footprint at Bright World. We have stopped printing our publications and now display our literature on our Digital Information Centre. We are currently exploring more areas where we can play our small part in protecting our environment and are hoping to gain a Carbon Footprint Standard verification soon.
