UK public schools expand into China
British independent school branches in China are expected to increase by nearly 50% in 2019, according to a report by Venture Education.
According to the ‘British Independent Schools in China: Annual Report 2019’, 2019 will see a record 14 British independent school branches opening across the country.
Amongst them are King’s School, Canterbury, and Shrewsbury School.
At the end of 2017 there were 22 British independent school campuses operating in China. This number is expected to have more than doubled by the end of 2019, with 10 new campuses in 2018 and a further 14 openings planned in 2019.
In addition, the number of British independent school brands with at least one branch in China is expected to increase by 64% in 2019, an indication of the strength of their brand abroad and their firm appeal to Chinese students looking to study in the UK.
Last year, the report continued, Shenzhen, Fuzhou, Xuzhou and Wuxi all saw their first British independent school campuses as will the cities of Nanjing, Guangzhou, Chongqing, Hefei and Foshan in 2019.
Commenting, senior partner of Venture Education Julian Fisher, described the “incredible growth” of British independent schools in China as a sign that British education is seen as the gold standard in China.
“British schools bring experience, expertise and innovation to a country that is looking for a holistic education that inspires the next generation.”
