An opportunity arose in 2011 for a UK school to become involved with a prestigious development planned for Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi, which would include world-famous brands such as The Louvre, The Guggenheim, New York University and St Regis. Three years later, Cranleigh School opened with 650 students in its very first year.

After one of the most successful launches of any UK international school, key members of the Cranleigh Abu Dhabi delivery team decided to form an educational partnership called EduReach. Their success was replicated almost immediately with a different school in a new country when Hurtwood House opened the first of its international schools in China: HD Ningbo.

EduReach now has school projects operating in six cities around the world. Our team offers unparalleled educational experience, comprising leading industry experts who between them have opened, led and operated numerous prestigious schools worldwide.


EduReach’s Formation
EduReach’s senior team came together during the initial phase of setting up Cranleigh Abu Dhabi. The project was the brainchild of Rick Johnson, a Governor at Cranleigh School. At the time, Guy Waller was Headmaster of Cranleigh School. Graeme Fisher was the lead architect on the Cranleigh Abu Dhabi Project.


Cranleigh Abu Dhabi
Cranleigh Abu Dhabi opened on Saadiyat Island with 650 students. It remains one of the region’s premier British curriculum schools.


Hurtwood House (HD) Ningbo
EduReach introduced Hurtwood House to China. The first Hurtwood House school was a kindergarten in Ningbo.


Hurtwood House (HD) Ningbo
HD Ningbo opened its full 3-18 school on an outstanding site close to the kindergarten. When the final phase is complete, the School will have a capacity of 1800 students.


King’s College Doha
In partnership with King’s College Taunton, EduReach established its first school in Qatar – King’s College Doha. The school has quickly grown into one of the region’s best preparatory schools.


Hurtwood House (HD) Shanghai
The success of HD Ningbo was quickly replicated in Shanghai with Hurtwood House opening in its second Chinese city. At capacity the School will cater to 1500 students from 3-18.


Denla British School
This is EduReach’s only school project not linked to a UK school brand. EduReach provided a full suite of pre-operational services, enabling Denla British School to open successfully within a highly competitive Bangkok market.


Hurtwood House (HD) Beijing
In partnership with EduReach, Hurtwood House enhanced its reputation as one of the most successful UK school brands to establish in China with the opening of HD Beijing.


Hurtwood House (HD) Qingdao
As part of the broader Wanda Oriental Movie Metropolis development, HD Qingdao is one of the city’s flagship school projects. The campus occupies a substantial site on Xingguag Island and will eventually accommodate up to 2000 students.
