Tony Child

Non-Executive Director

I joined ISC as a Non-Executive Director in 2018. Before this I spent nearly 25 years working for WCBS, and as MD for much of this period. The company is a leading supplier of management information systems to fee-paying schools across the world. My experience included establishing and managing a subsidiary focused solely on the international school market, where I worked closely with ISC Research to develop new markets. Earlier in my career I spent time at Director level in several business software companies, after attending the University of Reading.

I hold an MBA from the University of Bath.

As Organiser of the International School Golf Events I continue to be in close contact with senior managers from the sector.
