About Scholar 6

We’re striving to make the highest quality independent education more affordable and better suited to a new generation of learners. We want to preserve superb face-to-face teaching but also to redesign schools as flexible networks of academic resources and recreational opportunities in an environment which fosters relationships, resilience and independence. Close pastoral support and the vision of teachers as mentors as well as sources of knowledge underpins the Scholar 6 experience.

Scholar 6 is about much more than technology. It’s about re-imagining 21st century schools to be as productive, interesting and happy as they can be.

Joe Francis, Founding Director

Our Plan

Scholar 6 will launch its first college in London in September 2021, followed by three additional colleges within the capital before expanding into other major UK cities.

We are currently developing Brillder™ content so that the first school goes live with our technology already in place.

Our People

The Scholar 6 team brings together teachers and technologists from leading independent and state schools, as well as figures from industry, academia, sport and the arts. The vision we propose is balanced, creative and authoritative – now is the moment when we want to make it real.

It’s exciting to be creating a technology targeted at sixth-formers within a real school, especially because their experience can refine and improve our product.

Investment Opportunity

If you are interested in investing in Scholar6, contact us with your details and we will be in touch when our next round of funding commences.

Scholar 6 will be the first sixth form to integrate its own ‘blended’ learning technology on a truly cross-curricular scale. It will be the model to demonstrate how teaching and learning can use technology to become both more effective and more cost-efficient.
