Thomas Denny
Investment Director at International Schools Partnership (ISP)


Tom would say he has had a global education. He grew up on a boat, spending five years circumnavigating the world with his family. Tom’s experience of education has been widespread, starting with being home schooled during his time sailing. He then attended an international school in France before transferring into the English school system at GCSE level. He went on to study Business and Economics at the University of Exeter, gaining a first-class degree.

Tom’s career started researching green technology investments at Morgan Stanley in London. He later moved to the Middle East, initially working with the best of British businesses setting up in the region. During this period, he met International Schools Partnership (ISP) and worked with them on acquiring their group of schools across Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Qatar. Tom recently joined the ISP London team as Investment Director, helping ISP to expand their group of schools around the world.

Tom remains a keen sailor having completed four transatlantic crossings and gets very competitive over any sport on the water!
