Their pupils achieve outstanding academic success and their alumni include many world leaders, some of the world’s most successful business people, high profile diplomats and world leading academics.

As well as children from across the UK, these schools’ welcome international pupils from around the world, who’s parents recognise the benefits of attending a leading British school.

The high demand for places at these highly acclaimed schools by students from around the world has led some of them to expand internationally to countries such as China, Malaysia and the Middle East.

Some are now looking to establish themselves in the USA through a strategic relationship with a third party that shares their educational vision and is able to provide an appropriate location.

We are working with several of the UK’s leading schools which are looking to build long-term relationships with investors in the US. All are outstanding, but each has its own distinct ethos, tradition and approach to education. Each of them also has different criteria when identifying potential partners.
