About Dukes Education

When Aatif Hassan founded Dukes Education, he wanted to create a group that epitomised quality in the practice of developing young people. Growing up with dyslexia, it was the personal support from his teachers that helped him succeed and inspired a life-long love of education.

Dukes formally launched in 2015. Since then, we have built up a small family of diverse schools and complementary educational services. Each member of the group is unique. However, we joined together because we found cultures in these organisations that shared characteristics – optimism, ambition, and a deep personal commitment to outstanding teaching and learning. We believe that together we will be more powerful in helping young people go on to live fulfilling lives.

A Message from our Founder

"We are in a privileged position: we have a unique opportunity to create dreams and inspire excellence in our students. Only time will tell what lies ahead but we will continue to evolve and have fun while we create and inspire! Welcome to Dukes Education."
