Located in Cork City Centre, Bruce College is one of Ireland’s most successful private independent schools teaching 5th Years, 6th Years and Repeat Leaving Certificate students.

Cork is the second largest English-speaking city in the European Union. It is projected to be the fastest growing city in the country. It is also undergoing rapid transformation and is host to the largest regeneration project in Ireland.

Bruce College is a proud Cork institution. Our reputation is based on hard work and commitment to excellence in a positive and structured learning environment.

The staff at Bruce College are highly experienced and passionate about helping young people achieve their full potential. Our highly experienced team of teachers is a key tenet of our success, among whom are past examiners and textbook authors.

Our students have a myriad of reasons for attending Bruce College but are consistent in their ambitions to achieve and be successful. We are a top university feeder school.

We look forward to our new journey with the Dukes Education family and are excited about the future.

London Park Schools

I am delighted to be the Principal of this exciting new group of schools which offer a new approach to secondary education in London; one that celebrates the process of learning, that focuses on the individual within a smaller, collaborative community and which looks ahead to the future whilst recognising and celebrating the importance of an ethical, sustainable, and forward-facing approach. 

The need for a new model of secondary education has never been more apparent and it is time for schools to embrace more of the skill-sets that will be so critical for the work places of the future.  London Park Schools look forward and thanks to their agile approach, can design and deliver education that’s relevant for the workplaces of the future.  What’s more, we recognise the need for an approach that’s simpler, more straightforward and kinder to children when it comes to Admissions.  As smaller schools, our focus is on tailoring experiences to deliver more individual experiences within warm and supportive communities – all whilst embracing the benefits of being part of a larger group.

Together, each of the three London Park Schools will offer a model of secondary education that’s as dynamic, diverse, innovative, creative, and energising as London itself.

I look forward to telling you more.

About
London Park Schools

A Fresh Approach to Education

Welcome to London Park Schools; London’s exciting new group of secondary schools that offer a dynamic and more personal approach to secondary education, within a warm, supportive, ethical, and forward-thinking community.

Our two 11-16 co-ed senior schools feed into one sixth form, thereby offering intimacy of experience, breadth of opportunity and the certainty of an excellent, fresh-thinking and modern all-through education from 11-18.

Our experiential approach ensures that learning is more relevant and exciting; our focus on problem solving and integrated learning makes it tangible and helps the development of critical thinking skills.

Our size provides the reassurance that each student is well known by every member of staff whilst also enabling a more agile approach to the innovations needed for the workplaces of the future.

Choosing a senior school is one of the most important decisions you will ever make for your child.  We want to make it as simple, straightforward, personal and enjoyable as possible.  We look forward to telling you more.

IEP Group

IEP’s mission is that all students participate in a stimulating, rich and challenging curriculum that provides them with opportunities to reach their unique potential and through this new partnership with Dukes Education we will be even better equipped to make that mission a reality.

We started our adventure in Spain at the end of 2016, with the partial acquisition of 3 schools in the Valencian community; subsequently, IEP was founded in May 2018 with the objective of becoming a major provider within the Spanish private schools market. Despite the COVID pandemic, we have managed to grow to a group of 7 schools,  employing 450 teachers and educating 4,800 students from 1 to 18 years old. This partnership will enable us to begin the next phase of our development, still under the IEP name and IEP has the honour of being the first schools group in Spain to join the Dukes Education family.

IEP and Dukes have a common set of values, vision and purpose, and we are excited by the tremendous potential this agreement offers IEP staff and students as we benefit from Dukes world-class people, reputation and infrastructure. Students at IEP will benefit from Dukes international exchange and summer camp opportunities, as well as different sport competitions and other exciting and engaging extra-curricular activities. IEP students will also benefit from more world-class career coaching, internship and university counselling, and will be able to confidently apply to any university world-wide through the Dukes platforms.
