Russia Guardianship team

The Russian department works with clients from Eastern European countries and former Soviet republics. They provide a wide range of services within the independent education sector in the UK including guardianship services to children attending boarding schools, advice and guidance on the right choice of schools and assistance with school placements. Additionally, they supply hourly and residential tutors and arrange summer school courses. The team has good relationships with both families and schools – acting as parents’ representatives in the UK who entrust Gabbitas with their children’s well being. The department is based in our main London offices.
