Exporting Excellence: Creating Great British Schools Internationally - latest report launch
Exporting Excellence: Creating Great British Schools Internationally - latest report
9th September 2019
Exporting Excellence – Wild Search’s 25th publication examines the success and future prospects for British schools setting up abroad. It is our third report on the value of British education as an export.
Wild Search are delighted to announce the publication of our latest education report which includes contributions from a wide range of heads of leading independent schools. HMC Chair Shaun Fenton, King’s College Wimbledon Head Andrew Halls and Alpha Plus Chief Executive Mark Hanley-Brown all set out their schools’ visions and how they have implemented them. Contributors and schools covered encompass the United States, Africa, China and Kazakhstan and offer a wide range of experiences to form what will, we hope, be a key reference source for schools considering international expansion. Not all schools have pursued the creation of overseas campuses and Eton College’s “radically different route” to developing its reputation and influence through EtonX is addressed by its Chief Executive Catherine Whitaker.
In his preface to the report, Sir Stephen O’Brien remarks:
“Feeding minds with high quality education is absolutely essential in enabling all peoples and all countries to develop and prosper…..Exporting Excellence is a welcome and timely report.”
Amy Wevill, who edited the report commented:
“Our first report on education as a British export, also supported by Alpha Plus, was published in 2012 and its sequel in 2017. All three reports demonstrate our interest in – and commitment to – the international influence and benefits which education offers. At a time when Britain’s global trading position is entering a new phase, we hope that this report with its good news stories, will provide inspiration to others and signal the opportunities ahead.”
