"This latest bolt-on acquisition is an excellent fit with TCL Groups strategic objectives. We were delighted to advise TCL Group as it continues to take advantage of new opportunities within the education sector."

Operating through a seven office regional network BGF is backed by five of the UKs main banking groups -Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds, RBS and Standard Chartered.
