Expense account

For those on Classic and Premier Guardianship programmes we open an expense account. This facilitates a convenient and easy payment system by which we hold and administer a deposit account for any expenses occurring during the programme.
The account is used to pay for anything requested, which is not already covered by the school or guardianship fees. The funds belong to you/your parents, and will only be spent with parental permission.

Examples of charges paid through an expense account:
– Host family accommodation
– Transfers and taxis
– School bedding if needed
– School excursions
– Pocket money
– Holiday Guardianship (when/if applicable)
– Additional visits/meetings (if applicable)

When opening your account, we require a deposit, and during the term we require a certain balance in case of sudden expenses. Should the account balance fall too low, a statement and request for a top up will be sent. A full statement will be provided at the end of each term.
At the end of the guardianship programme we will return any remaining balance after deducting any outstanding charges, such as transfer costs.
