Sedbergh School is to offer British curriculum education in Vietnam via an existing school in Ho Chi Minh City.
The British Curriculum Integrated School, owned by EQuest Education Group, has been rebranded “Sedbergh Vietnam” and will offer Vietnamese students the opportunity to study a British curriculum and be prepared for life in a globalized world.
Additional schools in the EQuest group will follow suit later with similar programmes run by Sedbergh.
Peter Marshall, managing director of Sedbergh School International Limited said: “It is a great honour to enter into a formal collaboration with the EQuest Education Group, offering a British curriculum at BCIS in Ho Chi Minh City as part of their vision to transform bilingual education across Vietnam.
“Our commitment is for the long term in supporting the school to deliver excellence in all aspects of education and provide new opportunities for Vietnamese students in pursuing careers at home or abroad.”
Dan Harrison, Headmaster of Sedbergh School in Cumbria, UK added: “This is a significant development for British education in Vietnam that will open up new opportunities for Vietnamese students.
“Sedbergh School has a long heritage dating back to 1525. At the heart of our educational philosophy lies the pastoral care of our pupils, with a broad selection of academic and extra-curricular opportunities and a commitment to excellence in all aspects of a holistic education.
“We look forward to supporting the Sedbergh School International team in developing their long-term partnership with the EQuest Education Group throughout Vietnam.”
EQuest Education Group is a leading provider of international education in Vietnam. The group operates a network of schools that offer British, American, and Vietnamese curriculums.
Vietnam has a growing market for British curriculum education because of a growing middle class and increasing foreign investment.
