Many of our students are choosing to stay in the UK during their half terms and at exeat weekends. Travel restrictions remain in place across the world and so in some cases making the journey home is not possible at this time. Some UK boarding schools allow overseas students to stay in school. For those who cannot stay in their boarding house, Bright World Guardianships can help students to find a home from home with one of our host families.
Staying with a host family remains the most popular choice for students remaining in the UK for half terms. The half term is very popular as many students who would normally be going home now opt to stay in the UK during the pandemic. Not all schools stay open for students so Bright World host families are available to host our guardianship students.
For the reassurance of parents and agents overseas, all of our host families will have signed up for our Covid-19 Safe Plan for Host Families, should students fall ill with Covid-19 symptoms while they are staying with them. Our host families are also putting in place additional precautions to keep students safe during these times when they are away from school.
