Educational Guardian

Gordonstoun has more than 500 pupils, around a third of whom live overseas. Each of these has a UK-based Guardian, sometimes a family member and sometimes a formal Educational Guardian.

Educational Guardians provide a local home-from-home for our international boarders. They support students at school, attending concerts/events/matches much as a parent might, and provide occasional accommodation, for example at long weekends and half term.

This is an enjoyable way to make connections around the world, and many of our educational Guardians go on to make lifelong friendships with their students.

Educational Guardians are an important part of our pastoral care. They are fully supported and trained by the school. Educational Guardians must be at least twenty-five years of age.
