Expansion ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​into the North West with our latest acquisition on The Wirral.

We are delighted to announce that today we have expanded into the North West with our latest acquisition on The Wirral, next to Liverpool.

Forfar has today acquired Prenton Preparatory School – an independent, all excellent rated, co-ed school established in 1935 well known for its family atmosphere and inviting location, nestled in Oxton’s conservation area.
John Forsyth, CEO said the group’s most recent acquisition was not only strategic in terms of location – giving the group a presence in the North West - but also in terms of the local independent prep school market. He said:

“Prenton Prep is an established small school with a very strong reputation. We will be investing to significantly refurbish the school, equipping it with state-of-the-art classrooms and technology, as well as focusing on creating excellence in specialist subject areas."

“Our considerable expertise will support and resource staff to be the best they can be, so that each child has a clear individual learning plan that enables them to get into their secondary school of choice. We will maintain the small family ethos that Prenton and Forfar share and with our educational experience and financial support Prenton Prep will soon become the ‘go to’ school in the Wirral.”
Headteacher at Prenton Prep Mike Jones said:

“This is an exciting new chapter in our school’s history, as we move into a new phase of management directed by a drive to put us on the map for our academic and extracurricular excellence. Forfar is known for preparing children to go to the best independent schools, and we’re delighted to be part of this growing family of excellent schools focused on producing the leaders of the next generation.”
