Inspired Learning Group buys Sunninghill Preparatory School
Education provider Inspired Learning Group (ILG) has acquired Sunninghill Preparatory School in Dorchester.
Established in 1939, Sunninghill caters to children aged from two to 13 years old.
According to a statement, the governors decided to seek a long term, sustainable solution to enable Sunninghill to continue with its development plans to enhance the education provision and facilities at the school. After careful consideration and a thorough process, ILG was chosen as the ideal partner for the school, due to its shared vision, values and strong track record in providing a world-class education.
Following the deal, Sunninghill will receive significant investment that will be used to enhance the school’s facilities and professional development opportunities. ILG intends to work closely with headmaster David Newberry and his team.
ILG is comprised of 16 independent schools and seven nurseries, supporting more than 2,800 pupils within the UK. The company is led by chief executive Amit Mehta, alongside an advisory board chaired by David Tidmarsh.
Mehta said: “Through being part of the ILG family, Sunninghill will benefit from the sharing of best practice and the latest teaching techniques to help deliver the best possible teaching and learning for its pupils.”
Sunninghill will officially become part of ILG from December .
