Based in the UAE, SBS Education is the international arm of British school support specialist School Business Services Ltd and is our platform to offer local consultancy, supported by a dedicated, experienced team.
A leading global specialist in providing services and products to the education sector, School Business Services (SBS) was founded in 2007 by two owner-entrepreneurs, Tina Brown and Mark Tadman, both of whom have many years of experience in delivering business services and consultancy for the education sector.
SBS offers fully managed school services, school improvement, consultancy support and training to all types and phases of schools.
Beginning with an initial workforce of approximately twenty people, SBS provides Finance, MIS & ICT services for schools. Our rapid expansion over the years has seen us grow to now support over 500 schools, employ over 90 staff and open three offices in the UK and more recently global offices overseas in Dubai and Ras al Khaimah.
Constantly moving forward, our areas of expertise continue to expand as we discover the new challenges of international schools, and provide our extensive experience to make them exceptional schools. We relish partnering with passionate investors to create ambitious international schools and Early Learning Centres (ELCs) to help deliver prestigious curriculums.
