Global EdTech Company Discovery Education Opens New HQ in Bath

Discovery Education – the worldwide edtech leader whose state-of-the-art digital platform supports learning wherever it takes place –  has unveiled its new UK and International headquarters in Bath, Somerset. The new offices in Palace Yard Mews were officially opened by Jeremy Cowdrey, CEO and Howard Lewis, UK and International Managing Director at a special ceremony yesterday, 23rd May 2023.

Discovery Education’s relocation from London to Bath follows the company’s acquisition of Bath-based Doodle Learning in August 2022. The new Bath HQ houses more than 50 members  of Discovery Education’s UK and International teams focused on delivering the company’s award-winning digital learning services, including Espresso, Coding Health and Relationships and DoodleLearning to millions of students worldwide.

 

Jeremy Cowdrey, Discovery Education’s CEO said:

“Discovery Education’s UK and International office plays a pivotal role in our global business. We’re excited to open this new HQ in Bath, a thriving city and growing centre for technology and innovation here in the UK.”

 

Howard Lewis, Discovery Education’s UK and International Managing Director said:

“Discovery Education is proud to expand our presence here in Bath. The city’s vibrant tech scene makes it feel like a natural home for us and we’re excited about the opportunities it creates. We’re committed to working with the local community to promote the tech industry, develop future talent and encourage positive change for young people.”

 

Earlier this year, Discovery Education committed to a two-year partnership with Bath-based charity Mentoring Plus, to raise funds to support young people experiencing challenging situations. Discovery Education has also taken part in a number of local community initiatives, such as the Bath Digital Festival, and recruits interns and placement students from The University of Bath – University of the Year in the 2023 Times Good University Guide.

 Attending yesterday’s opening ceremony in Bath were: CEO Jeremy Cowdrey, UK and International Managing Director Howard Lewis, CFO and COO Brian Shaw, CPO Pete Weir and Product Development Director Tom Minor – who founded DoodleLearning in 2011.

The new HQ is just 80 minutes by train from London and a short drive from Bristol Airport, making it easily accessible for partners from across the UK and beyond.
