Orbital Education Set For Global Expansion With Hsbc Uk

Orbital Education will utilise an eight-figure HSBC revolving credit facility to develop quality international schools in diversified locations serving local families and expats.

Orbital’s schools currently provide British, bi-lingual and local curricula to children aged three to eighteen years old across Europe, Asia and South America, delivering results which are ahead of global averages and enabling access to leading universities.

Using the HSBC UK funding package, Orbital Education will continue to expand and enhance its current school estate and will seek additional growth opportunities in the international school’s sector.

The HSBC UK-funded expansion of Orbital Education is expected to add thousands of new student places globally and many new posts for UK teachers and education professionals, as well as further expand the workforce of its UK headquarters in Cheadle Hulme.

Kevin McNeany, Chairman at Orbital Education, said: “We’re delighted that funding from HSBC UK has allowed us to continue the growth of our international schools group. Orbital is an ambitious company and the support of HSBC – and now this funding – represents great endorsement of our plans. We firmly believe this significant investment will further increase standards and enable thousands of children worldwide to fulfil their ambitions.”

Zubayr Atcha, Global Relationship Director at HSBC UK, said: “It's fantastic to support Orbital Education with its international growth plans and help the business to continue providing education to children around the world. We look forward to seeing the business continue to strengthen its operations across the UK and beyond.”
