Exclusive: Dukes expands into mainland Europe with ULIS acquisition

  • 15th November 2022

Premium private schools operator Dukes Education has made its first deal outside of the UK with the acquisition of United Lisbon International School (ULIS).

ULIS has a large campus located in central Lisbon, which includes outdoor areas, sports facilities, a library, a theatre, science labs and art workshops. The school offers international educational programmes for grades 11 and 12, as well as extra-curricular activities and project-based learning with a focus on science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) subjects.

Established in 2015 by founder and chairman Aatif Hassan, Dukes Education operates a network of boarding and day colleges, schools and nurseries based across the UK.

The company has rapidly grown and expanded over the years both organically and through a series of acquisitions, including the recent purchase of three Hove Village Day Nurseries settings and the acquisition of InvestIN, a provider of career programmes and guidance.
