UK-based operator acquires Abu Dhabi's Reach British SchoolFebruary 2, 2016, 7:00 am GMT
UK-based school operator International Schools Partnership (ISP) has acquired the Reach British School in Abu Dhabi.
According to a statement, ISP's expansion into Abu Dhabi is "a response to the demand for the UK educational model in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the growing recognition of the UK as an educational centre of excellence in the country".
Ryan Robson, CEO of ISP commented: "The International Schools Partnership has been founded on the principle of inspiring world class learning and we are delighted to have the opportunity to deliver on this in Abu Dhabi through the Reach British School. Expanding our international partnership to the UAE was a natural move for ISP. There is a strong level of trust in the UK education model here and that we are keen to build on this. The school has fantastic potential and we are very excited about its bright future under our stewardship."
Reach British School was established in September 2014 and currently has 1,065 students enrolled from FS2 to Key Stage 3, with more classes to be added in the future.
