d’Overbroeck’s College joins Oxford International Education Group

d’Overbroeck’s College, an independent co-educational day and boarding school in north Oxford, has joined Oxford International Education Group – formerly ISIS Education.
 
Bowmark Capital has invested in both businesses, and has been seeking to expand ISIS through acqusitions since the summer, sources say. 
 
Established in 1977, d’Overbroeck’s has 460 students aged 11 to 18 and was ranked 14th in The Times national league table of co-educational independent schools this year. EducationInvestor revealed Bowmark was in exclusivity to buy it in September.
 
Oxford International Education Group (‘OIEG’) – formerly ISIS Education – provides pathway and English language tuition in the UK and North America. 
 
A source told EducationInvestor that OEIG is moving away from its pure ELT roots, and towards a broader mix of schools and pathways. Bowmark is said to be looking at a number of other standalone assets as potential bolt-ons.
 
In a statement OEIG said: “By joining forces with OIEG, d'Overbroeck's will have access to substantial further investment to support the school’s expansion. In particular, the school’s governing body and senior management team have identified the need for further investment in additional facilities and physical space for the sixth form to meet the strong demand for student places.”
