I am delighted to announce that Dukes Education has now formally agreed to acquire Cardiff Sixth Form College and that contracts have been exchanged. The Dukes team has been present in Cardiff to support the management team since Wednesday 8th March.
This is an exciting opportunity for both CSFC and Dukes. The achievements of the CSFC team in gaining the best A Level results in the UK and supporting students in reaching outstanding University destinations are formidable. Dukes Education are similarly market-leading, providing the highest quality educational services.
As a current school operator, Dukes is well placed to support the senior management at CSFC. The current CSFC team have established a long-standing track record for providing a first-class education and entry at the very best universities. Dukes Education, who provide the UK’s leading university entrance consultancy for students applying to the most esteemed universities worldwide, will supplement the knowledge and experience of the already outstanding incumbent team. Combining the UK’s best A Level provider with the leading university entrance consultancy is a unique opportunity to guarantee the best possible outcomes for all the students at CSFC.
Since 1999, Dukes Education has delivered high-quality education to students of all ages and nationalities through three core channels. The group owns three leading GCSE and A Level colleges in the UK and CSFC will be the fourth. Known for their specialised focus on university admissions and key professions from creative arts to sciences, the colleges are supported by the Dukes Education Consultancy, which provides world-class tuition, school placement and university entrance support for students applying to top universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, and the Ivy League. Finally, the group hosts students from over 100 countries every year at their international summer study programmes in prestigious British schools and the University of Oxford.
Having worked with international agents and advisers for the past twenty years, I am aware of the invaluable contribution that you make to the success of many schools and colleges in the UK. I am looking forward to working with you to write the next chapter in this remarkable success story.
