Dukes Education’s ambition is to provide students, from their earliest nursery years up to undergraduate level, with a clear pathway to excellence at university.
Their team of experts are led by John Ing. As an educationalist of over 20 years and former Housemaster at Harrow and Stowe schools, John spent years growing a wide network of close links with the best independent schools in the country. He developed an educational ethos that drives their tuition and admission programmes, founded on the principle that a personal connection between teacher and child allows young learners to thrive. Through Dukes, families are equipped with the behind-the-scenes understanding they need to empower them to make the best choices for a fulfilling education.
