The Alpha Plus Group seeks to deliver the gold standard in education. Although we encourage every one of our schools to have its own distinctive ethos, the group also has common aims and values. We want to see strong leadership in each of our schools and we provide training and support to the Heads and their Senior Management Team in order for this to happen. We want to see effective partnerships with parents. We want all our staff to place the welfare of the child at the heart of everything they do. The aim of the Group is to give every child in our care the best possible start in life.

The Alpha Plus Group currently consists of 20 schools and colleges. There are three standalone nursery schools, 12 pre-preparatory and preparatory schools and 5 secondary schools and colleges in the Group. APG is the largest private educational company in London (15 schools in the capital) and we also have schools and colleges in Cambridge, Manchester, Coventry and Tonbridge. Internationally APG has recently opened a school in New York (Wetherbys-Pembridge School) and, with our partners in China, will soon open nursery schools in Shanghai and Hong Kong.
