Portfolio High conviction

The group is a supportive partner to its schools, allowing them to maintain their identities and individual learning cultures whilst providing support in areas such as curriculum development and management. It has a particular focus on Montessori education, which aims to create an ethos of critical thought, respect and independent learning and which is becoming increasingly popular in the United States.

Leeds Equity acquired Endeavor in February 2018 . Leeds has extensive knowledge of this sector having successfully managed a schools group in a prior fund. Leeds was selected by the company’s management team as the optimal partner to grow the business with the resources and above all specialist experience to guide the business to its next phase of development.

Endeavor was recently named as one of the top 1,000 growing companies in the United States and one of the top 20 fastest growing companies in the education sector.

ICG Enterprise co-invested directly as well as through its commitment to Leeds Equity VI.
