The Inspired Learning Group (ILG) is delighted to welcome Danesfield Manor School to the group. This now brings our ever-growing family of schools and nurseries to a total of 18 within the UK.

Founded in 1940 and nestled within a Victorian house in Walton on Thames in Surrey, Danesfield Manor School is an independent school for pupils aged 2 to 11 years. A combination of excellent staff and high expectations have resulted in the school achieving a high ranking in The Times Top 100 Schools nationally in previous years.

Commenting on joining the group, Headteacher of Danesfield Manor, Mrs Jo Smith, said: “I am delighted that Danesfield will be joining the Inspired Learning Group family. I firmly believe this represents an amazing opportunity for the school as we enter a very exciting new chapter. Our vision, ethos and educational approach sit brilliantly with ILG’s approach and I very much look forward to Danesfield benefitting from and sharing best practice and resources across the group. I most certainly believe we can look forward to an exciting future for all pupils, parents and staff at Danesfield.”

Amit Mehta, CEO of ILG, said: “During my initial visits to Danesfield Manor I was instantly struck by the school’s nurturing and inspiring learning atmosphere where the pupils’ excitement and enthusiasm for learning was almost palpable. I am thrilled to welcome Danesfield Manor to the ILG family, and I look forward to working with Jo and her dedicated team.”
