Dukes Education is delighted to announce the recent welcoming of four new members to their family of schools and education services: St Andrew’s College in Cambridge, Chiswick and Bedford Park Preparatory School (Chiswick) and Hampton Court House in Hampton joined the group this term, along with our recent new member, the Career Portal, a leading career pathways consultancy.
Aatif Hassan, Chairman and Founder of Dukes, explained the decision making behind the recent growth: “In the case of all three schools, Dukes already had a very local presence. In Cambridge, our school, Sancton Wood, is next door to St Andrew’s College. Chiswick & Bedford Park Preparatory School is around the corner from our recently-joined school, Orchard House, and Hampton Court House’s location in Bushy Park is a stone’s throw from Radnor House Twickenham and the Riverside Nursery Schools. I am also, personally, a local to the two west London schools, growing up and living in these parts. As a result, I’ve witnessed first-hand the love and loyalty the local communities feel to these schools, and the impact they have on the families that attend them. They stood out as embodying everything we think is important at Dukes – above all, putting the pupils at the very centre of all decision making. I have developed a great relationship with each of the Founders and Heads, and I genuinely could not be more pleased that they have chosen to entrust their wonderful schools to us.”Read about Dukes schools & colleges
