Creating Life-changing
Schools and Places

The CEA Group is a pioneer in creating new educational pathways and experiences.
We build life-changing schools and places for generations to come.


Since its inception in 2004, the CEA (Clarence Education Asia) group has been developing and operating best-in-class British international schools, and now enjoys an expanding real estate portfolio across Japan.

CEA flagship education brands include

  • Clarence International School

  • Phoenix House International School

  • Rugby School Japan

Through its management and investment consulting arm, CEA has lent its expertise to the British Council, the Eiken Foundation of Japan, and British Public Schools.


Clarence International School


Clarence International School, established in 2016 in collaboration with the royal charity Children & The Arts (founded in 2002 by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales), is a pre-school that now educates more than 100 young children in the Omotesando area of Tokyo. The CIS curriculum focuses on the Arts, and is underpinned by the British Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.



Phoenix House

Phoenix House International School opened its doors in August 2021 in Tokyo. The school offers a creative and innovative British style independent school education within the rich cultural context of Japan. 


Both in the East and in the West, the Phoenix is a legendary bird. Throughout its long life, it rises again and again to better itself, becoming stronger by learning from its past and charging into the future. PH seeks such qualities in each and every pupil under its care.

North Peak

Some of the most meaningful education happens outside of the traditional classroom. CEA’s North Peak campus in Hokkaido has been developed specifically to harness in visitors of all ages a deeper appreciation for life, people, and planet.

Groups from all over Japan have enjoyed enriching summer and winter experiences at this unique spot, located just 35 minutes from New Chitose Airport. The North Peak campus features extensive classrooms, a lecture theatre, stables, and accommodation for 120 pupils and staff on 50,000 square meters of green land.


Hokkaido Home Farm

This idyllic CEA location in northern Japan is conceived as a utopia on earth. Since its development in 2019, Hokkaido Home Farm has provided an ideal setting for school tours, employee wellness activities, outdoor pursuits, and corporate events. It has even featured as an exclusive luxury wedding venue!

Rugby School Japan plans to open as a Y7-13 co-educational day and boarding school in Kashiwanoha, Chiba Prefecture in Autumn 2023.


Rugby School Japan


Japan Polo Association

Japan Polo Association was formally registered in 2016, when it established the country's first polo club. The work of the JPA includes securing polo ponies through its international network, opening access to Japan's unique racing industry, and educating young Japanese players with global ambitions. JPA works closely with Federation of International Polo (FIP) and many other partners across the world. 


Co-founders of CEA Fei-Fei Hu and Ayahi Suda were named Entrepreneur of the Year at the 2021 British Business Awards (BBA). The husband-and-wife team was recognised at the 14th annual black-tie event celebrating UK–Japan business relations, which was broadcast live from the British Embassy Tokyo.
