Chinese investors keeping British private schools afloat, says ex-Harrow head

The former headmaster of Harrow School in the UK has said that the recent trend for Chinese firms investing in British private schools is a ‘very encouraging development’ and can be the ‘salvation’ of small institutions on the brink of financial collapse. He also credited such purchases as giving British pupils a ‘sense of globalisation’. A number of British schools have been bought by private firms in recent years, including Bournemouth Collegiate School, Ipswich High School for Girls and St Bees.

哈罗前任校长表示中国投资者让英国私立学校焕发了新的生命。

英国哈罗学校前校长表示,近期中国企业对英国私立学校的投资热潮是“非常令人鼓舞的发展”,对处在金融崩溃边缘的小型教育机构可谓是“雪中送炭”。他还认为,这种收购行为让英国学生产生了“全球化意识”。近年来,一些英国学校纷纷被私营公司收购,其中就包括伯恩茅斯科立杰学校、伊普斯维奇女子高中和圣比斯学校。
