Wishford Education acquires Rupert House School

  • 5th March 2024

Independent education group, Wishford Education, has acquired Rupert House School in Henley, a nursery and prep school for children aged three to 11 years.

Charles Lowe, chairman of governors, said: “We are delighted to have found a partner in Wishford which can fully realise our ambitions for Rupert House and will enhance the already-outstanding education we deliver to our pupils.

“They share our values and are keen to support and develop our close links with the wider Henley community.

“Wishford brings the scale, back-office expertise, and financial clout that will see Rupert House looking forward to its next 100 years with confidence.”

Wishford‘s founder and chairman, Sam Antrobus, added: “We are very selective about the schools that we bring into our group and Rupert House is the first to join since 2018.

“We only work with schools when we believe that there is a strong match in ethos and beliefs and we certainly felt this to be the case with Rupert House.

“The school will retain its strong identity and approach with [head] Nick Armitage and his team continuing to drive the school forward.

“We will be able to add expertise in all of those disciplines required to support and expand the delivery of a first-class education.”
