Regent Group was established in 2000 by Selva Pankaj, Tharshiny Pankaj and Senior Selvanayagam.
Regent Independent College was the very first division within Regent Group established that same year offering full-time courses for Year 10, Year 11, AS and A2 as well as intensive one year courses for GCSE and A-Level.
As it established both its place in the local community and a favourable reputation, it grew in student numbers and an interest in part-time provision evolved with enquiring parents.
So it was that in 2000 Regent Learning Centre was established in Harrow, offering programmes of supplementary tuition for students Year 7 and above in English and Maths. Demand led to Science being added to the suite of subjects on offer. Later, primary tuition for students aged 4 upwards in literacy and numeracy was introduced along with programmes of preparation for entrance exams for independent and grammar schools. Since then a further centres has been opened in Edgware.
In 2004, Regent expanded into childcare with the opening of Regent Nursery. It currently offers childcare for children up to 5 years, on both a full-time and part-time basis. Regent Nursery has two branches in Harrow and Southall.
In 2010 based on demand for alternative courses, Regent diversified into the provision of Higher National Diploma courses and thus Regent College Higher Education was born and has since blossomed. The division now offers a range of Higher Education courses including HNDs, Foundation Years, Bachelor’s Degrees and Top-up degrees in business, marketing and health & social sciences that are validated by Buckinghamshire New University and University of Northampton.
With a view to a diversification of the courses that it could offer to adult learners, after Regent was approved for entry on the Register of Training Organisations in 2014, it established its Regent Skills Training division, which offers a range of vocational and academic qualifications including Functional Skills and BTEC Level 3 courses in Business. In the same year, Wembley English Academy was launched which specialises in English courses.
Regent Leadership is Regent Group’s newest venture offering executive level education, supporting learning through coaching and providing highly personalised programmes to meet the needs and aspirations of senior level clients.
