As the number of international students attending to UK schools continues to rise, some of the most well-known boarding schools have established branch campuses abroad. The number of overseas branches has increased steadily, responding to the growing demand of middle-class families eager to provide a quality education – and subsequent career opportunities – for their children. For schools, branches provide an opportunity to grow their brands and generate new revenue streams.

In an investigation of the drivers behind overseas branch campuses, the report includes proprietary research identifying the priorities of parents when considering the decision to send their children to the UK for secondary school. A quality education, perceived to be superior compared to the local offer and a concern for personal safety and security are among the key factors, which, combined with other more complex and global scenarios, are significant drivers behind the growth of overseas outposts for UK boarding schools. In examining the influences contributing to the growth of overseas branch campuses, this report offers unique insights to help support the development of a sustainable economic model for this emerging sector.
