Does she not have any school friends who live nearby or a local guardian ? will school not help ?

Ask the school about their Guardian scheme. Any overseas student should have a local UK Guardian who can look after them in these circumstances. Some use an agency and some use parents from the school -we are guardians for boy from Hong Kong who is a boarder at my DS school and he comes to us for half terms but goes home for the longer holidays. We have been police checked to ensure child protection concerns are covered and as a parent myself I certainly wouldn't be sending my daughter off to stay with random strangers without any clearance from the school or the authorities.

As 3nations has said, overseas students at UK boarding schools usually have to have a guardian, unless this is somethingthe school arrange, I know of a boarding school locally who make the arrangements, including advertising for families, due to police checks etc.
As half term is next week it seems a bit late to be organising this, and you certainly don"t want a random person from an open internet forum. Phone your daughters school to make arrangements.

Thanks for all replies and very clear explanation.
my daughter has a guardian ( my relative) But she will be out of town for 2 weeks in next half term ( may) so I need to find home stay family for next half term break in May only. I just want if some parents for recommendation that they are having a good home stay family who can take care more than one student or any agency for such home stay service. As I do not use their guardian service as I already have.

www.whg.eu.com are based in bournemouth, they might be able to help. I am a guardian with them but in completely the wrong area for you. It is much better to go through a company rather than advertise for a family - that way you know your daughter will be safe.

Why don't you come over and spend the week with your daughter here? It would be a lovely time of year and you could enjoy a nice break together.

I would talk to her housemistress and see if there is a friend she could go home with for half term - surely better than going with a complete stranger. Did your relative (the Guardian) not realise it was the school holiday - looks like you will need a back up plan for the future eg for illness
