One category of business we are always keen to represent is Special Needs. We usually have a wide range of buyers for these – but not enough come on to the market to satisfy demand.
So we were very pleased to be asked to take a look at a 28-place Special Needs School in the Eastern Home Counties. Most of the places in SEN Schools are, of course, LEA funded. These are worthwhile, secure and profitable businesses which deliver value to society. If this opportunity is of interest, please contact us and mention you read about it on the Blog.

Very well built, attractively toned and stylishly turned-out Health and Fitness Club seeks long-term, stable relationship with new owner.
We don’t normally sell anything but educational businesses. But someone whose school we sold has asked us to sell this ….
STC are acting as confidential agents for the sale of one of the most attractive health and fitness clubs in the UK. A gem set in a mansion house in a glorious rural setting, it panders to the whims and ambitions of a well-heeled clientele to the West of London.
The large membership – about 1800 – is happy, stable and affluent. The club is very well – and very charmingly – run by a professional, incentivised staff.
We are looking for the best offer over £4,000,000 and there is already healthy interest. This is an excellent long-term, freehold investment.
That’s all we can say here – please contact us and we shall send you our confidentiality agreement.
