Wild Search has a strong network and experience of researching and advising on international growth, notably through its work in education and through its publications. Our advisory team members hold senior appointments in China and Myanmar.

Our track record in search encompasses the appointment of the Overseas Projects Director for Haileybury, the Director of the British Institute of Florence, senior appointments for the European Conservatives and Reformist and the Global Fund. We have also advised a number of international colleges on senior appointments such as d’Overbroeck’s (Head of International School), MPW (Vice Principal) and Dukes Education.

We have published three reports which focus on both the success and potential for UK schools and colleges to expand overseas:

World Class Education: A report on education choices for High Net Worth families in the UK and beyond (2018)

Education: The Greatest British Export (2017)

Education: A Great British Export? (2012)

In early 2019 Wild Search hosted roundtables on UK education businesses in China at the London office of the leading Chinese law firm King and Wood Mallesons and another on broader international reach. We are preparing a publication, Exporting Excellence, on the growth of British schools abroad in partnership with the Alpha Plus Group and AQA, which will be launched in September 2019.
