Uppingham Vietnam will bring an exciting option for a British day and boarding education to Ho Chi Minh City when it opens in 2023.

Uppingham Vietnam is due to open in 2023 as the first international school in the country to offer a UK public school day and boarding education. The prestigious Uppingham School has partnered with Viet Capital Education to open this co-ed school in Ho Chi Minh City.

Uppingham Vietnam will offer a choice of day, weekly or full boarding to students aged 11-18 years. Teaching will follow a UK curriculum that works towards IGCSEs and A Levels. 

Uppingham School, which is located in a rural town in Leicestershire, offers a full boarding experience and broad curriculum to 800 students from across the UK and overseas. Founded in 1584, Uppingham was originally a boys-only boarding school, and alumni include comedian and actor Stephen Fry. Today, this co-ed school believes in breadth and flexibility, giving its students the freedom to follow a wide variety of paths to university – and a wide choice of A Level subjects. 

The school hopes to position its new Vietnam campus as a "true alternative for Vietnamese students who may otherwise have considered studying abroad at a top private school in the UK or elsewhere.”

Dr Richard Maloney, Headmaster of Uppingham School, said:

“We are honoured and excited to be partnering with VCAM to open Uppingham’s first overseas school. Through this partnership we have the opportunity to design and build a state-of-the-art, purpose-built school which brings together the best of Uppingham and South-East Asia.
“Our relationship will establish strong educational ties between our two nations, and Uppingham Vietnam will bring myriad opportunities for everyone who is part of the global Uppingham community. Together, we can pioneer a defining educational vision for the 21st Century.”

Viet Capital Education is an investment fund managed by Viet Capital Asset Management (VCAM).

Pho Pham, CEO of VCAM, said:

“We are honoured to work with Uppingham School, whose visionary leaders pioneered liberal art studies, music, and sports in modern education. Together we commit to build a world-class institution that nurtures tomorrow’s forward thinkers, debaters, and creators.
"We aspire for Uppingham Vietnam to become a true alternative for Vietnamese students who may otherwise have considered studying abroad at a top school in the UK or elsewhere.”

Facilities will include art and science buildings, gym, swimming pool and sports pitches, as well as boarding houses on campus.
