International Partnerships

Becoming Our Partner

NLCS (UK) is actively looking to open branch schools outside the UK. Overseas we operate a co-operative partnership model.

The North London brand and reputation rests on delivery of outstanding results, therefore we use a very "hands on" approach to partnership, leading and managing the school development cycle every step of the way.

In the initial phase we work closely with our partners to establish the feasibility of a new project and adapt our educational model to local market requirements. Working with selected suppliers we develop the school opening plan and manage the critical path from inception to opening.

NLCS's in-house experts produce the academic plan, the educational brief, the detailed organisational structure and other pre-opening documentation and directly manage key pre-opening activity including recruitment, licensing, training etc. Post opening we work closely with the school team to ensure an outstanding delivery of NLCS's annual objectives and development plan through a programme of teacher selection and training and school monitoring and inspection.

Our overseas partners are in charge of school construction and ongoing operations. We are looking for well-established credible organisations and individuals sharing our passion for teaching, subject rigour and nurturing young independent thinkers. Strong fit with NLCS's brand ethos and values is a key requirement. 

Interested parties are invited to contact Mr Ali Aliev, Director of Business Development to arrange an initial consultation.

We have a successful track record of delivering our unique educational mix in an international environment. Our first branch school opened in Jeju, Korea in 2011 as a mixed Boarding and Day school. In a short period of time, our Jeju School became a reference for excellent international education, delivered by highly qualified knowledgeable and inspiring teachers selected and developed by NLCS (UK). Our second international school opened in Dubai in September 2017.

To replicate our success in new markets we have now set up a scalable operational model and created an international team focused on opening further branch schools outside the UK. The team is led by Bernice McCabe, Director of International Schools & Education Strategy, Headmistress of NLCS (UK) between 1997 and 2017, Chair of the Academic Board for Head teachers of NLCS Schools and Co-Director of the Prince’s Teaching Institute.
