Anita Gleave

Founder & CEO

Chatsworth Schools. Blenheim Schools

Born and raised in Cheshire, I studied for my first degree in Theology and Education at Oxford. After University, I went on to teach at a Prep school in Hertford followed by teaching posts in London, before becoming the founding Head of The Grange (RGS Worcester) in 1996. Whilst at The Grange I also studied for my M.Ed. in Leadership and Management. In 2001 I took up a Headship in Bath followed by a Principalship in Yorkshire in 2004. In 2008 I was promoted to a Head Office position at Alpha Plus Group and became Director of Operations two years later. I then added international education to my experience by moving to World Class Learning. In 2012 I became a founding partner and Director of Operations and Education for the International Schools Partnership which today owns forty-eight schools around the world. I am passionate about creating outstanding futures for our children as well as learning spaces and cultures that allow and encourage all to thrive and be the best that they can be. I live with my husband, three dachshunds, Archie and a bonkers cat called Bertie, in the Cotswolds, Norfolk and France, and am often found careering around the countryside in my beloved Morgan!
