Over the years, we've advised hundreds of families and one thing is for sure - every child is different. That's why we work closely with you to understand which students will fit in best at your school and help you achieve your recruitment and retention goals.
Academic Families will:
I am always so impressed with the professionalism of Academic Families.
Every member of staff I have had interactions with is on the same wavelength as I am with regard to the focus being on the safety and wellbeing of the pupils, and they have the knowledge and experience to deliver time after time.
They are a very friendly and helpful organisation who I have found to go above and beyond the call of duty in order to help find the right solution. They communicate well with schools, parents and pupils, and they take a genuine interest in the whole person so that they can best support and nurture the young people in their care.

Academic Families has personal and professional experience with boarding schools. Many of our staff attended boarding schools themselves when they were young or have worked in them. We have all lived overseas and most of us are mothers, so we understand how important it is to find the very best education for every child no matter where that might be in the world.
From our headquarters in Edinburgh to our local staff across the UK, our team regularly visits hundreds of British schools. Our excellent knowledge of the UK education system and certification from the British Council means we understand UK boarding education from the inside and out, and know how to ﬁnd the best school for each child.
In addition, our guardianship service has been fully accredited by AEGIS (the Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students) since 2016 so you know, with Academic Families, you're guaranteed to have the best local support anywhere in the UK.
Moreover, our team are trained MHFA Mental Health First Aiders so we are qualified to support our students with any wellbeing and mental health concerns.
