Saint Felix School, has today announced a new partnership with renowned education provider, Inspired Learning Group (ILG), that will enable the School to continue providing the best possible education and opportunities for students and staff.

Through this partnership, Saint Felix will join the ILG family and benefit from extensive investment that will go towards improving the School facilities and professional development opportunities, to enhance the School’s existing high standards of teaching and learning.

For more than 120 years, Saint Felix School has been recognised for its outstanding academic results, pastoral support and the extensive range of extracurricular activities available for students. This was reflected in the School’s ‘value added’ score in 2019 which placed Saint Felix in the top 5 per cent of all schools across the country.

In view of the significant challenges of the global pandemic, which have led to unpredictable levels of recruitment, especially for international pupils, the School was prompted to seek a long-term, sustainable solution which has secured its future and also ensures the highest-quality education, based on outstanding teaching and learning, will continue for years to come.

Subsequently, after careful consideration, ILG was chosen as the ideal partner for the School due to its shared vision, values and strong track record for providing a world-class education. Inspired Learning Group comprises 16 schools and nurseries, supporting over 1,300 students across South-East England. Saint Felix joins a well-established education group with a network of likeminded schools whose resources and expertise will enrich the School’s offering to students for generations.


James Harrison, Headmaster at Saint Felix School, said:

“At Saint Felix we have a long and successful history of providing the very best education and opportunities for students. We are passionate about supporting each and every child to discover and realise their full potential, which is why, with these shared values, Inspired Learning Group is the perfect partner to build further on our rich tradition of academic and extracurricular excellence.

“All of our decisions have been made with the best interests of our school community in mind, and I am excited that we are about to embark on this new chapter as part of the ILG family.”  


Amit Mehta, CEO of ILG, said:

“We are delighted to be welcoming Saint Felix School into the Inspired Learning Group and look forward to supporting the School as it continues to deliver a fantastic educational experience for students and staff.

“Working closely together with the staff and families at Saint Felix, we are committed to continuing the School’s positive trajectory and hope that they share our excitement in joining our wonderful network of schools, pupils and staff, and benefiting from shared resources that will continue to drive future growth, and, above all, empower students to fulfil their potential and go on to lead happy and successful lives.”


Saint Felix School will officially become part of ILG on April 30 2021.
