Midhurst school is acquired by education group
A prep school in Midhurst has been acquired by education group Quo Vadis (QV) Education.
Conifers School, in Egmont Road, which caters for pupils aged two to 13 years, has joined Boundary Oak School in Fareham to become the second school under the QV Education umbrella.
The Midhurst school will now come under the management of QV Education’s founders – Aaron Stewart (CEO), a former pupil at Conifers with two children who currently attend the school, and James Polansky (Co-Founder), who is also the Headmaster of Boundary Oak School.
Mr Stewart said: “We are delighted to confirm that QV Education has acquired Conifers School, which is particularly special for me as I am a former pupil myself and currently have two children attending the school.
“Throughout the process, it has been clear that Conifers, Boundary Oak and QV Education have a natural synergy and a common desire to provide our children with the highest quality education.
“Our mission going forward will be to enhance Confers School with new investment and oversight, whilst maintaining the previous community ethos of the school for pupils and parents alike.”
Quo Vadis, Latin for ‘Where are you going?’, was set up in 2014 to manage independent schools.
Its ethos is to prepare pupils for life, providing children with the resources and experience needed to help them reach their potential.
