What is the BSA?



Edinburgh Guardian Angels are pleased to announce that they have now become accredited with The Boarding School Association [BSA]

 

  

 

 

What is the BSA?

 

The Boarding Schools’ Association (BSA) champions boarding and promotes boarding excellence. The BSA is the largest association of boarding schools in the world and represents more than 600 independent and state boarding schools, over 500 of which are based in the UK.

 

The BSA and their member schools seek to work with the best educational guardians and their vigorous Certified Guardian Scheme is an assurance of professional quality.

 

The BSA training and certification programme provides assurance to BSA boarding schools that they are dealing with educational guardians who have the highest standards in the safeguarding of children, safer recruitment and training of sta and host families, and careful liaison with parents and schools.

 

The scheme is a clear demonstration to BSA boarding schools of the quality and intention of the educational guardians who reach certified status and, I am very proud to say that, following vigorous interviews, Edinburgh Guardian Angels have been approved as a member of the BSA.
