A new vision for
International Education in Asia
Leading the education industry as a group of professionals with expertise in operating K-13 international schools and enrichment programmes.
Since its founding in 2004, Clarence Education group has been developing and operating British international schools and paving the way for prestigious British public schools to provide education of the highest quality to children.
Clarence International School, established in 2016 in collaboration with the royal founding charity, Children & The Arts (founded in 2002 by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales), now educates more than 100 young children. It has a focus on the Arts, underpinned by the British Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.
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.
What we do
We have developed the most comprehensive turnkey system for establishing leading international schools while carefully managing uncertainty and risk.
Schools under our management benefit from compliance and legal support, recruitment of senior leaders, staff training, financial and strategic planning, marketing and admissions planning, curriculum and pedagogy development and implementation, ICT optimisation, and advisory services for school-specific needs.
Hokkaido Enrichment Campus
Some of the most meaningful education happens outside of the traditional classroom. When people develop a deeper appreciation for life, their local and global community, and both deepen and widen their skills and passions, we call this enrichment. We’ve developed a campus in Hokkaido specifically to harness this in pupils from all over Japan, with truly unique summer and winter programmes. 35 minutes from New Chitose Airport, our Enrichment Campus features classrooms and accommodation for 120 pupils and staff on 50,000 square meters of land.
