Another UK-based group opens international school in Riyadh

Beech Hall School Riyadh is the first school in Saudi Arabia in partnership between the UK’s Chatsworth Schools, and Fawaz Alhokair  

Riyadh, June 9, 2023:  A new international school, the Beech Hall School Riyadh has opened in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, ahead of the new academic year.

This is the first of the many more international schools being planned in the Kingdom, thanks to the partnership between UK’s Chatsworth Schools, and Fawaz Alhokair, founder of Fawaz Alhokair Group, a leading Saudi Arabian holding company and in line with the Royal ‎Commission for Riyadh City (RCRC)’s International Schools Attraction Program.

The new school joins 14 other schools and nurseries of the Chatsworth family. Unlike other traditional British schools, the Beech Hall School Riyadh follows the International Early Years, Primary and Middle Years curricula, which draw on the expertise of the UK curriculum whilst maintaining an international perspective. This is combined with thorough Arabic and Islamic Studies programmes to ensure that students are immersed in the heritage and culture of Saudi Arabia.

Anita Gleave, founder and CEO of Chatsworth Schools, operator of Beech Hall School said: “Our vision for this partnership is for Beech Hall School Riyadh to be a truly international school in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Through a reimagined approach to education, we provide all children with a lifelong learning mindset, so they can adapt to the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century and beyond.”

Beech Hall School Riyadh is currently welcoming applications from boys and girls from KG1 to Grade 8. The Grade ranges will expand in the coming years.

“Our new school supports Saudi Arabia’s aspiration for developing a fully inclusive, high-quality education sector focusing on the development of our children’s resilient and independent characters. This is a non-profit project, part of our charitable efforts to enrich education for students, especially students with determination,” said Fawaz Alhokair, founder of Fawaz Alhokair Group.
