  • 4. What would be the investment amount?
    The initial investment amount is decided after studying the potential of the area, the number of students the school is targeting and the fee structure that can be expected. Based on this, we do a reverse calculation to arrive at an investment amount. In addition, a certain amount has to be invested in advertising and for working capital for the first couple of years.
  • 5. Is it possible to start with a low investment? We are considering a low investment initially and wish to expand slowly based on the response.
    This is not possible because if you don’t invest properly upfront, people will return disappointed and later on, no matter how much you spend on advertising, people will not change their perception easily. Hence, it is important that when you launch the branch you create only that much hype or publicity, which you can fulfill. However, you can construct the school in phases, but whatever is constructed should be up to SHEFFIELD Standards.
  • 6. What is an ideal location for SHEFFIELD School? What is the criterion for approval of location?
    The branch can be situated at any good location where students can have easy access. For approval of location, there are various criteria that need to be fulfilled, such as the land size, accessibility, visibility, neighbourhood, lease rental to be paid (if leased), competition etc.
  • 7. Would you help in finding out a suitable place to start the school?
    Yes, once the agreement is signed, a site selection professional will work with you as well as with local brokers or developers to evaluate sites in your market and help identify the proper location for your new school.
  • 8. How much space is required and of what kind is required (Residential, Agricultural, Institutional or Commercial)?"
    Any type of land will do as long as it is allowed by the local civic authorities or the conversion is permitted.
