1. STARTING NEW SCHOOLS


Gyanmanthan understands the fundamentals needed to develop a successful school from the ground up, and can provide customized ‘turn-key’ services for primary, secondary and high school formation. 

A market feasibility study and business plan is a critical starting point and foundation for the development of any school. Our market feasibility study and business planning approach quantifies start-up capital requirements and operational budget, break-even point, IRR, the feasibility of the school model in your market, enrolment projections, facility/site requirements, educational philosophy, human resource and infrastructure requirements.

G.M.E.S formalizes your educational, operational, and business model, and quantify enrolment projections, capital needed to open the school, and your five year budget to determine when you break-even, and your internal rates of return and pay-down to investors.The rationale behind the market feasibility study and business plan is to consolidate the scope of your school formation project through an extensive onsite business case analysis to identify key elements and costs associated with developing your school and tasks associated with start-up. Upon conclusion of this process, we can better determine what you need to do next and the project’s feasibility. Our four-step development model follows these stages:
1.    Market Study and Business Plan
2.    School Development Plan
3.    Implementation of School Formation Plan
4.    Operation, Management, & Ongoing Support


2. IMPROVEMENT OF EXISTING SCHOOLS


Best practice schools are only achieved through the creation of a strategic vision supported by a carefully structured action plan. This is achieved through a thorough audit of curriculum delivery, school environment and parental involvement. Gyanmanthan works in partnership with existing school leaders to review and implement new strategies for:    

  • Annual review processes    
  • Governance   
  • Preparation and support for accreditation process    
  • Leadership appraisals and evaluation   
  • Community building
  • Curriculum development


G.M.E.S then develops a 3-5 year plan establishing the following:

Goal statement, performance targets, areas of focus, implementation strategies, success indicators, time lines, responsibilities, checkpoints for improvement updates and course corrections.


​Our advisory committee of education consultants also enables us to develop a contemporary and custom made curriculum for an educational institution. Curriculum development requests can be both long or short term ones and we have experience in developing both. We deal with schools, colleges and ministries of education in the region who are also keen to develop their curriculums.
