Advising groups on school purchases
MTC consultants have worked for the majority of groups who invest in the fee paying independent education sector, helping some of them enter the market and grow their portfolios. We have also advised on divestments.
A group were interested in a new purchase to enhance their portfolio. MTC were asked to assess the size and location of the market and whether action could be taken to make the school more accessible. The strength and positioning of the competitors in the maintained and independent sector was assessed and recommendations made about whether the proposed business plan for the new acquisition would work. MTC responded very quickly to a tight deadline. A full report was submitted advising on the viability of the purchase.
Once they understood the potential in the market the group purchased the school, and have commenced an investment programme to support growth.
