Nord Anglia Education, commonly referred to as Nord Anglia, is a provider of international schools. The head office is in Nova South, 160 Victoria Street, London.
Nord Anglia has 69 private day and boarding schools which are located in 29 countries across the Americas, Europe, China, Southeast Asia, India and the Middle East.
Nord Anglia Education was founded in 1972 by Kevin McNeany to teach English as a foreign language. The company grew in the 1970s to the 1980s before moving into the UK education market. Soon after, it entered the Eastern and Central Europe market. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, the group also built up a day care and nursery business in addition to its Learning Services arm.
In 2003, Andrew Fitzmaurice became CEO. By 2008, the company had sold its nursery business and mainly focused on international schools.
In 2015, the company bought six schools from Meritas: the Collège du Léman, Léman International School - Chengdu, San Roberto International School, The Village School, North Broward Preparatory School in Florida, and Windermere Preparatory School in Florida.
In December 2017, the company bought seven schools from the British Schools Foundation: The British College of Brazil, The British International School of Kuala Lumpur, The British School of Nanjing, The British School of Tashkent, The British School of Yangon, The International School of Moscow, and The King's School Manila.
In May 2019 the company moved their headquarters to London, and relocated operations to London.
In February 2019, the company acquired five schools under the Oakridge International brand in India. The five schools are located in Hyderabad, Vishakhapatnam, Bengaluru and Mohali. The price was estimated at about ₹ 16 billion.
Nord Anglia students are connected through the Global Campus, a program which offers a wide range of activities undertaken in school, online or at destinations around the world.
Previously its head office was at the Anglia House in Cheadle, Greater Manchester, and then the Nord House in Burton-upon-Trent, Staffordshire. The head office moved to Hong Kong in 2012. It was in the St. George's Building in Central, Hong Kong. In 2018 the company announced it was returning its head office to the United Kingdom, with London being the new location.
In 2015, Nord Anglia partnered with King's College London to offer a Master's in International Education. The courses are designed to address challenges specific to international schools. The program is fully funded by the company and available only to its teachers. Nord Anglia and King's College London states that the program will open up to teachers outside Nord Anglia schools in 2020.

All Nord Anglia Education schools in China use English as the primary language of instruction. Each student receives four lessons in Mandarin Chinese a week, except in Hong Kong where this is optional. Students reach a proficient level in Mandarin Chinese by the time they leave.
Nord Anglia Education schools in China are among the first to receive the new Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts program in their schools thanks to the growing demand in the region for the institute.
