Bloom Education, a division of UAE-based Bloom Holding, has signed an agreement to seek possible locations for schools in Saudi Arabia.
The memorandum of understanding with AlKifah Holding will identify business development opportunities in the Gulf kingdom, the company said in a statement.
Henning Fries, CEO of Bloom Education, said: “The agreement highlights our efforts to bring world-class schools to the wider GCC region... we have a proven track record of delivering outstanding schools in the UAE and we committed to grow our offering to pupils across the GCC.”
Muhannad Saleh, property division director, AlKifah Holding added: “We have been very impressed by the standard of education that Bloom brings to the region and are committed to working together to explore the feasibility of expanding their education offering into the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.”
Bloom Education currently owns Brighton College Abu Dhabi, Brighton College Al Ain and will be opening Brighton College Dubai and Dwight School Dubai in September 2018. They have also recently launched the Singaporean nursery brand Mind Champs in Abu Dhabi.
