AEGIS is the Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students. It brings together schools and guardianship organisations to promote the welfare of international students and also provides a forum for best practice through regular workshops and conferences.
The fact that Bright World is now AEGIS accredited offers further peace of mind to parents who send their children to a UK boarding school. For example, we make sure all our host families are of a very high standard and are fully police checked before they work with us. We also only use the services of two reputable taxi firms who we trust to reliably and safely undertake transfers to and from the airport. We are basically on-hand 24hrs a day to offer advice and help to students who may have queries or problems.
The move to being accredited by AEGIS has therefore enabled Bright World to continue and expand its exemplary international guardianship service to students all over the world.
We are particularly proud of this quotation from the Chairman of AEGIS:
"Bright World is a caring and very efficient Guardianship Organisation. It is particularly strong on ensuring that children settle in well on their first experience in overseas education. Its choice of host families is carried out in a careful and caring way to ensure a good experience for children.’
John Dunstan, Chairman of AEGIS

"Bright World is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment."
Looking back at last week’s activities, Overseas Registrar, Jackie Walkom gives us a taste of student life at Sedbergh School.
