Outdoor education and adventure company Inspiring Learning has acquired activities and training provider In2Action based on the Isle of Wight, FE News has reported.
In2Action offers school residential trips, as well as products and services for the leisure sector including activity development and training.
Inspiring Learning’s existing brands include day camp provider Camp Beaumont, residential activity provider Kingswood and training specialist Skern Training & Skills. The firm is backed by private equity house Bridgepoint, which invested in 2016.
Inspiring Learning’s chief executive Alex Williamson said In2Action had “created a very special business that has always focused entirely on creating exceptional outcomes for its clients and guests. Inspiring Learning is equally committed to creating life-changing moments for people and so bringing In2Action into our family is a natural next step in our evolution. The team are exceptional and I look forward to seeing this fabulous brand flourish in the months and years ahead.”
George Ross, owner of In2Action, added: [We] have been working on this for some time because we could see the benefits that could come from joining forces. As tough as the last year has been, it gave us all time to reflect on the opportunity properly and get this deal done. I could not be more delighted with the home we have found for In2Action and cannot wait to work with Alex and his team on the next chapter of In2Action’s story.”
