Oakridge Internationalhas been taken over by Nord Anglia Education for a whopping Rs 1,600 crore, The Economic Times Reported.

Oakridge International is one of Hyderabad’s premier private schools and Nord Anglia Education is a Hong Kong-based company. The deal was concluded only weeks ago but it was reported on Friday.

“While the deal was signed a few weeks ago, the proprietors sent out a communication to the Hyderabad CEOs’ Forum on February 5,” said a city industrialist, who is part of this exclusive group. “It states that the existing proprietors have exited and the school is now part of the Nord Anglia Education family, a global organisation with more than 60 premier K-12 schools in more than 30 countries.” The industrialist was quoted as saying by ET.

Mr.Rajasekhar, when contacted by ET, declined to comment but admitted to a shift in management: “We cannot say it’s been sold… but there is some change in the People Combine management. We will let you know details later.” He was quoted as saying by ET.
