Who can become a partner school

We are looking for schools who wish to be associated with quality, traditional and innovation. Typical Belvedere Schools will be ambitious (often local schools) who wish to take their offering to the next level. Our schools attract parents who value education and are looking for the highest standard of education at an affordable level.

In areas where there is already a Belvedere School or franchise exclusivity we can introduce you to a number of other partners whose brand is also available as a franchise.

How does the Franchise Model Work

We can offer a number of services and subject to requirements can tailor-make an agreement to suit the nature of your school, enrolment projections and potential for growth. Our agreement is based on an annual percentage return, typically less than 5% of all mandatory pupil fees and charges for each pupil that you have on roll. As our research shows ‘British Schools’ such as the ones that have adopted the Belvedere brand are able to enter the fee market at the moderate to mid fee range, whereas local schools tend to often languish in the low to moderate fee market range.

In areas where there is already a Belvedere School or franchise exclusivity we can introduce you to a number of other partners whose brand is also available as a franchise.

By entering into a franchise agreement with us, becoming a credible British School will allow you to set a higher fee structure (in line with locally allowed increases) and any expenses generated by the franchise fee can normally be offset by either the increase in pupil numbers or the increase per capita in school-fee revenue.

We collect our fee, in line with any instalments or payments plans that are offered to parents, after you have issued your fee invoices. For most schools this usually means that three payments per year are made to us.

For any of our clients who wish to open more than one school in a city, region or in multiple locations we can offer ‘Master Franchises’. This gives you exclusivity on the Belvedere Franchise and all its benefits, in the area that you have chosen to develop. There is typically an up-front fee for this privilege and an agreement that in your location you will open a determined number of schools within a fixed time period. Each school you open is then subject to the usual franchise fee and arrangements.
