Freddie Cloke

School Development Manager

I work closely with investors and schools, helping them to identify commercial opportunities within the international K-12 schools sector. I am based in Shanghai, China and spend much of my time visiting schools and investors globally and advising them on the international schools market and associated opportunities for development.

After graduating with a bachelor’s degree from University College London, I embarked on a Master’s programme in International Relations which was taught in Mandarin at Wuhan University in China. Following that, I established an education consultancy business there to recruit Chinese students to UK independent schools and universities.

Before joining ISC Research, I co-founded the Wuhan British Business Association to connect UK and Chinese businesses within the Wuhan market, collaborating on events with the Department of International Trade and the British Consulate General, Wuhan. I also worked with universities in both the UK and Wuhan to identify commercial opportunities in the areas of research and student exchange.
