'bring in their own UK Chairman and Chief Operating Officer Peter Fyles as Acting Principal'

You should check to see if he is even qualified to do that. Headteachers should have a NPQH and as far as I know Fyles only has QTS.

Again, another example of unqualified people doing jobs they shouldn't. In Sweden they make a profit by getting as many students in classes as possible, having no TA's or LSA's, no SEN Dept and having unqualified or just qualified staff that are cheap. I taught in a school of theirs in SE as left as soon as I realised the company was a joke. The rate of staff turnover the company has it ridiculous! People are fired for raising issues or chose to leave due to the state of the place or the lack of support.
