EKI 'evolved' from being an asset manager of a single school, to being a leading integrated Education Management organisation spanning several school & nursery brands and geographies.
We are the only operator in the region focusing very specifically in schools & nurseries offering British curriculum across the GCC region, and are using our know-how and expertise to continue to lead and innovate in this sector.
In 2006, EKI partnered with Repton School of the United Kingdom, a prestigious Derbyshire-based independent school with more than 450 years of education excellence, to offer British independent school curriculum education in Repton schools across the GCC region. The first school to be launched under this partnership was Repton School Dubai which opened its doors in the academic year 2007-08 and has been consistently rated 'Outstanding' by KHDA.
Foremarke School, partner school of Repton UK’s preparatory school, Foremarke Hall, opened in Dubai in September 2013, as did Repton School Abu Dhabi. We will open Repton School Muscat in September 2019
EKI has also launched its own early learning platform under the brand name “Dovecote” which operates in Dubai and Muscat, and has retain a majority stake in Abu Dhabi’s oldest nursery “Humpty Dumpty” to complement our portfolio.
