Starting a school is an opportunity to create something that lasts. We want people passionate about education who are unafraid of risk, innovation or technology. We want to disrupt the way people see education and deliver something truly valuable for our students; a preparation for the next 20 years.  

A start up school requires teachers who are interested in education beyond their own subject; who have ambitions to lead in schools, who want to get involved. The opportunities for personal, professional development are massive and we will be ensuring a substantial budget is set aside for accredited courses with either IB or our partner IE University.
