Rob Price, CEO, School of Rock
School of Rock has had something of a bumper year when it comes to international development, with the musical education franchise opening in not one, nor two, but three overseas markets: Taiwan, South Africa, and Spain – with the latter being the franchise’s first location on the European continent.
The U.S. brand also celebrated the opening of its 300th school, and saw a boom in student figures, rising from 22,000 to 46,000. It also broadened its curriculum to include a greater range of diversity, including Black and female artists as part of its established repertoire of iconic musicians.
The growth of School of Rock has been off the back of a tumultuous year for education across the board, showcasing the true resilience of this finely-tuned franchise.
