UK: Bosworth Independent College joins CATS
Bosworth Independent College in Northampton, UK has become the 18th school to integrate into the CATS Colleges group of schools, making CATS one of the largest school groups in the private education sector.
CATS Colleges Group comprises three brands: CATS Colleges – international boarding schools in the UK, US and China; Cambridge School of Visual & Performing Arts; and Stafford House, a chain of English language schools in the UK and North America.
“Bosworth will be able to access a range of support so that together we can create bright futures for more students”
Each year, the group educates over 18,000 students from 100 countries to prepare for the next stage of their educational careers.
Bosworth, which provides independent boarding education to pupils from the UK and abroad, has more than 300 students including more than 200 boarders from 39 countries.
“I’m delighted to welcome Bosworth Independent College to the group,” said Chris Stacey, CEO of CATS Colleges.
“A small school with a tight-knit community, Bosworth will be able to access a range of support from around the network so that together we can create bright futures for more students.”
As part of the integration plans, Bosworth will offer a new University Foundation Programme designed specifically for international students and will be able to take advantage of CATS Colleges’ links with more than 30 UK universities offering conditional progression opportunities.
Both CATS Colleges and Bosworth Independent College were purchased separately last year by Bright Scholar Education Holdings Limited, the largest operator of international and bilingual schools in China.
