Sam Holderness, Business Integration Director – Beyond the Classroom & Dukes Club

Sam leads the collaboration of our Beyond the Classroom organisations and The Dukes Club, ensuring pupils across the Dukes family benefit from our expertise. He ran Summer Boarding Courses until 2021, during which time it became the first ever specialist to gain a perfect British Council accreditation inspection, and established programmes with Eton & Oxbridge Colleges.

Prior to Dukes, Sam was with a private organisation running homes for children in residential care with challenging behaviour and complex emotional difficulties. His wide experience with young people ensures a child-centric belief remains at the centre of his approach.

Raised in Singapore, Sam attended an international school and subsequently finished his education at a boarding school in the UK. He holds a MSc in Psychology and is never happier than running across the beaches of West Sussex with his family.
