Dubai-based educational group Taaleem has secured the exclusive rights to operate Harrow International Schools Ltd across the UAE, following its acquisition from the UK. Harrow, known for its illustrious history of educating British prime ministers, aristocrats, and influential figures such as Lord Byron and Winston Churchill, will now be managed by Taaleem. The agreement extends Taaleem's operational rights to Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, and Kuwait, aligning with the group's strategy to expand its regional footprint and diversify its offerings as a listed entity on the Dubai Financial Markets (DFM).

Khalid Al Tayer, Chairman of Taaleem, expressed pride in partnering with Harrow International Schools Limited, highlighting this as a significant milestone for Taaleem. He emphasized the commitment to uphold the highest educational standards, creating an environment conducive to both academic and personal growth for students. David Eyton, Chairman of the Governors of Harrow School, shared his enthusiasm for expanding access to Harrow's education through Taaleem, focusing on nurturing students' talents and passions to elevate educational standards.

The integration of Harrow International Schools into Taaleem's portfolio supports the UAE's vision for a diversified economy and sustainable development by enhancing educational standards and accessibility. This partnership is complemented by the upcoming openings of Taaleem's two new Dubai British Schools, Jumeira and Mira, scheduled for August 2024 and September 2025, respectively. Alan Williamson, CEO of Taaleem, commented on the privilege of extending Harrow's legacy of academic excellence across the GCC region, marking a significant milestone with the launch of Taaleem's first Super-Premium schools, offering enhanced educational choices for parents and students.
