“Our group mission [is] to prepare each student to become a global citizen who can shape the world”
The acquisition brings Globeducate’s total number of Europe-based schools up to 33. Globeducate said the expansion will strengthen its reputation as one of the “leading” international school groups in Europe.
“When schools join Globeducate, the transition is smooth – and welcomed by parents,” said CEO of Globeducate, Luca Uva.
“Our group mission to prepare each student to become a global citizen who can shape the world resonates with international school parents and expats.
“They appreciate the values that we bring to schools such as our commitment to addressing the UN Sustainable Development Goals and our partnership with WWF and Eco Schools; and our global events and educational festivals hold great appeal.”
Uva explained that the organisation’s “success” with supporting schools to transition to online learning, and its commitment to staff development, during the pandemic has provided “much-needed reassurance and belief in the group”.
“School leadership teams have very little to do in convincing existing parents of the value of being part of our forward-looking family with our feet firmly planted in a belief in excellence in education, multi-lingualism and sustainability,” Uva said.
Granada College, a bilingual schools with 1000 students is the latest addition to Globeducate in February.
“I am convinced and excited that being part of the Globeducate family of schools will provide us with new experiences that prepare our students for a future in a global world, without limits or barriers,” said the school’s founder, Javier Jimenez.
Mougins School in France is Globeducate’s third international school in the Côte d́Azur and IPS in Lisbon is the third British international school in Portugal to join the group.
