It is with very mixed feelings that we have to announce that Academic Asia (International) Ltd will close in June 2021.

Having reached the age of 76 (and with another birthday looming), the owner and managing director, Martin Webber, has decided that the time has come to retire and to devote his time to his favourite pastimes of travelling and eating.

Martin says: "I have loved my time running Academic Asia and I would like to thank all of the wonderful colleagues, schools, parents and students who have helped to make my job so enjoyable. I will miss you all terribly."

Academic Asia as an entity will continue and the offices in China will continue to function and to help able and talented young people to find places in British independent schools. To contact our China offices please contact the Director, Dom Sui, in the Guangzhou office:

If you would like to contact Martin Webber then please call 07977 566135 or email

Thank you!
