English language provider joins Cognita
Cognita is proud to announce that Ardmore Language Schools, the largest privately-owned UK operator of English language summer courses for under-18’s, has joined our global family. Our acquisition brings Ardmore within Cognita’s Active Learning Group (ALG). Based in the UK, ALG supports students’ character development and global perspective through its operation of Bushcraft, which provides outdoor learning experiences for schools, and Super Camps, which runs camps for children during UK school holidays.
Operating residential centres in the UK and US, Ardmore uses the educational and residential facilities of prestigious establishments such as Imperial College London, Brighton College, Oxford and Cambridge.
Stuart Rolland, Chief Executive of Cognita Europe, said Ardmore is a highly complementary organisation for Cognita: “We are delighted to welcome Ardmore Language Schools into our global family. Its focus on foreign language learning complements all three elements of A Cognita Education – academic excellence, character development and a global mindset. Language acquisition is a key skill young people need for a successful future and we’re excited by the positive opportunities that Ardmore can help create in our global family of schools.”
Ardmore is run by Martin Corr, Managing Director, with a head office near Marlow in Berkshire and a subsidiary office in New York. A big Cognita welcome to Martin and the Ardmore team!
