Inspired Learning Group (ILG), a UK operator of independent schools, has acquired Saint Felix School near Southwold, England.
According to the East Anglian Daily Times, Saint Felix will receive a “multi-million-pound investment” under the terms of its takeover by ILG.
Saint Felix, a day and boarding school for children aged two-to-18, will join ILG on 30 April.
Led by and financed by founder-chief executive Amit Mehta, ILG operates nearly 20 private schools and nurseries, most of which are located in or around London.
James Harrison, headmaster at Saint Felix School, said: “At Saint Felix, we have a long and successful history of providing the very best education and opportunities for students.
“We are passionate about supporting each and every child to discover and realise their full potential, which is why, with these shared values, Inspired Learning Group is the perfect partner to build further on our rich tradition of academic and extracurricular excellence.
“All of our decisions have been made with the best interests of our school community in mind, and I am excited that we are about to embark on this new chapter as part of the ILG family.”
Mehta said: “We are delighted to be welcoming Saint Felix School into the Inspired Learning Group and look forward to supporting the school as it continues to deliver a fantastic educational experience for students and staff.
“Working closely together with the staff and families at Saint Felix, we are committed to continuing the school’s positive trajectory and hope that they share our excitement in joining our wonderful network of schools, pupils and staff, and benefiting from shared resources that will continue to drive future growth, and, above all, empower students to fulfil their potential and go on to lead happy and successful lives.”
