International Family Reviews

We are committed to ensuring the safety, happiness and progress of every child in our care, we provide every student with a fully checked and carefully matched host family in the families choice of location, reliable, safe and cost effective transportation assistance by our transport provider, regular school visits and attendance at all important school meetings and 24/7 emergency support.

Here is just a selection of the things parents have said about us recently.

We would like to thank CGA for all their help as a guardian to our daughter. They took into account all our requirements and helped us with our choice of host family and also organised a visit to the College and a meeting with potential host families.

CGA regularly attends parent meetings and other school events on our behalf, they update us on our daughter's progress, meet with the host family and keep us updated with regular reports. They have also helped with registering with a doctor, organising transport for our daughter's return home and the planning needed for Duke of Edinburgh Gold expeditions.

We appreciate all your help and care. Joe likes staying with Amanda and the family- the dogs, kids and a house with such history are a lovely place to stay when Joe is not in school and he looks forward to his stays. It was especially kind of the family to look after Joe when he was on his tennis tournament during the Summer holidays, it made him feel he had another family as all his friends had left already for the Summer break.

Yijiia would not have settled so quickly or so well without your care and her stays with Mandy and her family. She likes staying close to the school and having someone close who comes to the school either early or later to see her. We considered changing schools recently but were concerned we may have to change Guardian and would have to change host families, for us bringing Yijiia’s new year envelopes into the school and arranging shopping trips to London with Mandy, buying food for Yijiia to cook for the family- there are many special memories.

You work very quickly, professionally, and efficiently especially in the case where our student had an emergency at a weekend. I am now very confident our student will be well cared for by you.

I would like to show my sincere thanks to Julia Evans and CGA for their work for my daughter who desired to study at day school in Cambridge after finishing her GCSE in a boarding school in the UK two years ago.

One could imagine how helpless we were when the existing guardian at that time could do little to help us finding a suitable host family for my daughter. Until we found CGA and Julia from the internet, we started feeling relieved and the support and assistance from Julia to my daughter began.

CGA is based in Cambridge and Julia is a local dweller. She is very familiar with the community and has an excellent local network. As a parent with overseas working experience Julia not only knows well the needs and difficulties of international students but she also cares much for what parents like us worry and concern about. She works closely with parents.

What my experience with CGA is that Julia performs the education guardianship with heart and she is always helpful with a view to facilitate my daughter well settle in Cambridge. I hoped that my daughter could be living with a host family as close to the school as possible to minimise the travel difficulties. Julia helped me to sort them out thoroughly. She initiated a meeting with me and introduced the host family when I decided to come over to Cambridge to accompany my daughter to start the school term. She also closely followed through the school schedule and attended the parents and guidance meetings by informing me her attendance in advance and provided reports for me for reference shortly afterwards through email. She responded to my enquiries quickly and gave me all the information and assistance I needed and the logistics arrangements of my daughter's self-arranged curricular activities. I feel very safe and like I get a friend who knows me well to offer me a helping hand on time on every occasion.

The support for me and my daughter has never failed in the past two years. Julia and CGA are so reliable and trustworthy that I would recommend it to those who are looking for a guardian for their children in Cambridge. I wish CGA continues to be cherished by students and parents.

"Our son attends a boarding school near London since September. We are from Germany, so we are happy to have met Mrs. Julia Evans from Cambridge Guardian Angels. She offered us a lot of support and help. Her information gave us safety and we know our son can find help every time close to school. Thank you so much."
