Why should you invest in an independent or private school?

The core advantage of running an independent or private school is that you have much more leeway in how you operate. You can steer everything from the topics you cover to the fees you charge, allowing you to cater the operation to whichever pursuit you deem worthwhile. In general, you have much more scope to drive profitability.


Are independent schools and private schools the same?

For the most part, these terms are indeed used interchangeably to refer to schools that aren’t funded by government budgets or programs.


The world of education isn’t right for every entrepreneur, but if it’s captured your interest and you’re ready to take on the task of running a school, we can help you get to that point. Get in touch for support finding the right opportunity and making the most of it.
