About Us

Inspiring Futures Education (IFE) is a group of international schools offering English language and academic programmes to prepare students for progression to leading boarding schools and universities.

A Message from Our Founders

We founded Inspiring Futures Education in 2014.  Having both previously worked in international education, albeit with very different backgrounds, we were excited about the opportunities associated with increasing international student mobility and the strength of a British education, with the UK being one of the top destinations for international students pursuing study abroad programmes.

IFE’s schools, currently Bishopstrow College and Padworth College, provide a stepping stone for students, helping them to prepare for and progress on to the next stage of their education, whether that be boarding school for students at Bishopstrow or university for students at Padworth.  In most cases, students progress on to British schools and universities, which have a reputation around the world for offering excellence.  It is for this reason that IFE uses the strapline ‘Pathways to Excellence’ and why our logo, visible on our website, social media and every publication reflects a gateway.  Everything we do at IFE is driven by a strong desire to support our students in preparing for and making a successful transition to their destination school or university, where they can achieve their true potential.

Welcome to Inspiring Futures Education.
