A warm Welcome from the Principal

Welcome to Hyde Academy – a unique blend of online learning, authentic United Kingdom curriculum and global perspectives. Since 2013, Hyde Global Education has existed to make a difference for young people across the world. The founder, Annie Hu, has built up an exceptional business focused on putting student needs first, designing tailer-made curriculum programmes with an opportunity to bring the traditional UK education to Chinese students both at home and overseas. Her passion, drive and attention to individuals’ needs means that students gain from small group or 1:1 personalised teaching, and a well-established ambitious team of highly experienced and professional tutors. Now is the time to launch our exciting new online school – an iCloud UK prep school to meet the ever increasing demand for this provision and education. We have seen a huge upswell through 2020 of online learning being the ‘new normal’, greater demand across China for quality teaching of British curriculum and an ever growing trend of younger people ultimately wanting to study in UK schools and colleges. So – the school exists to meet all of those needs – providing a golden opportunity forstudents in China to study the UK curriculum, alongside students across the world who want yet more support for their learning. All groups can enjoy the huge benefits of the UK curriculum and many will use this as a key springboard for entry to and great success in UK schools and universities in the future. As you will see, we love to help children foster that spirit of independent learning, think critically and grow up into highly confident and accomplished global citizens. 

—Mr James Hanson 

As teachers and tutors at Hyde Academy, we love nothing more than feeding these highly motivated and inquisitive young people to develop knowledge, skills, attitudes and habits to be successful as they move to senior schools, universities and the world of work to come. The team we have here shares exactly those same values and vision for the learners who join the Academy. 

Our leadership team

Mr James Hanson

Former Principal of Aldro Prep School

My desire and ambition is to see young people achieve their true potential, and thrive in the world ahead of them. By getting to know students as individuals, it is possible to discover and nurture their many natural talents and interests alongside their curious academic minds so develop the whole child. 

Ms Annie Hu

Founder of Hyde Global Education

I think the essence of education is to help young people develop their independent personality, critical thinking, and global perspective, and let them stand with other excellent peers.

Mr Simon Berry

Former Housemaster of Harrow School

My wide experience of the top tier of British boarding schools has taught me the importance of matching boys and girls to the right school, so that they are happy. I am proud to work with Hyde Global Education, whose high standard of professionalism matches my own.
