Riverston Acquires Beech Hall School

Riverston Schools (UK) Ltd is delighted to confirm its acquisition of the business and assets of Beech Hall School. Professor Michael Lewis, Chairman of Riverston commented, ‘This is our first major UK acquisition and my colleagues and I are simply delighted to assume the stewardship of such a fine school which clearly has so much potential. Considerable investment in the property, facilities and resources is envisaged and will form part of an extensive redevelopment programme over the coming years’.

James Allen who is currently Deputy Headmaster at Riverston School in London will be relocating to assume the headship of the senior school in September 2015 and be responsible for several new developments.

Riverston School was established in south-east London in 1926 and has been in the Lewis family’s ownership since 1956. Prof. Lewis and his wife acquired the school in 1990. Riverston specialises in providing an inclusive and integrated bespoke education to students of ALL abilities. The Riverston Group was formed to capitalise on the success of Riverston School. Other UK acquisitions and international expansion plans are at an advanced stage.

Existing and prospective parents are very welcome to visit the school and meet either Geraldine Yandell or James Allen in the coming weeks. A revised website is currently under construction.
