Furthermore that due diligence was taking place and the outcome was currently under negotiation. It was clarified that the school ownership would remain with the current company and that a portion of funds from any potential lease would be reinvested in a significant upgrading of the facility.

Nord Anglia is a global firm focused on international institutions with 42 located across the globe. In Thailand their network includes St. Andrews International School Bangkok and Regents International School Pattaya.

Other Asian operations are located in Hong Kong, Mainland  China and Singapore, while on a  broader basis their footprint covers the US, Switzerland, Spain and the Middle East.

Nord Anglia was founded in the U.K, it is now headquartered in Hong Kong, and is a listed company on the New York Stock Exchange.
