It has been a big year for international education in Japan. Famed British schools such as Harrow, Rugby School and Malvern College are in various stages of entering the market, with more than 3,000 new student slots to be opening up over the next few years – the biggest expansion in international education in the country since 2018.

Keen to hear an on-the-ground view from professional British educators?

Join us for a special event “British Education in Japan – A Year in Review”, taking place on the afternoon of Saturday 26 November, at the Tokyo Edition, when Heads of British schools in Tokyo run by the CEA Group will discuss what Japanese media has dubbed the “British Invasion” – the most significant cultural phenomenon to move across the pond since The Beatles – and share views on developments and demographics in their school communities over the past 12 months.

Established in Omotesando in 2016, the school offers a unique opportunity for discerning families to access a culturally-rich curriculum. Working closely with the prestigious British royal founding charity — Children & The Arts (CATA) in the United Kingdom, founded by HRH the Prince of Wales in 2006 — the school aims to play its part in exposing children to the arts in Japan. The CIS curriculum is carefully crafted using the gold standard of the leading Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) pedagogy from the UK.
