Our History & Values

Our History

Gabbitas Education is one of the most esteemed and respected educational consultancies in the world.

Founded in 1873 as an agency for the recruitment of schoolmasters to English public school, many of Gabbitas’ first teachers and tutors went on to become household names, including  Evelyn Waugh, HG Wells, Sir Edward Elgar, Amy Johnson, Sir John Betjeman and, more recently, Stephen Fry.
