Quo Vadis Education has acquired Conifers School in Midhurst, West Sussex, a prep school with 65 pupils aged two to 13 years.
The company also owns Boundary Oak in Fareham, Hampshire, a co-educational day and boarding school for pupils aged two to 16 years, which has 350 pupils and was acquired in 2014.
Quo Vadis Education was founded by chief executive Aaron Stewart, a former pupil at Conifers, where two of his children study, and James Polansky, headmaster of Boundary Oak School.
Stewart said: “We are delighted to confirm that QV Education has acquired Conifers School, which is particularly special for me as I am a former pupil myself and currently have two children attending the school.
“Throughout the process, it has been clear that Conifers, Boundary Oak and QV Education have a natural synergy and a common desire to provide our children with the highest quality education.
“Our mission going forward will be to enhance Confers School with new investment and oversight, whilst maintaining the previous community ethos of the school for pupils and parents alike.”
