PASCAL Education, with 3,000 students and 11 schools across three campuses, will join Globeducate, which includes 55+ bilingual and international schools, now in 10 countries.
The provider, comprising both day and boarding schools and an accredited International Baccalaureate World School, shares many “values and goals” with its new owner, according to Globeducate chief executive officer, Luca Uva.
“I believe this will be a dynamic and important step in the future growth of both organisations,” Uva said.
“We are very excited to be welcoming PASCAL Education to Globeducate and to extending our global community to include a new part of the world for us as a group.”
Globeducate is looking forward to working with the new 350 colleagues in Cyprus, Uva added.
“We strongly believe that this is a very positive development that will guarantee the growth of our organisation in Cyprus, modernising our structures and practices, bringing in new expertise and know-how, and upgrading our services,” said PASCAL Education president, Pantelis Andreou.
“Our teachers will benefit from being able to join international learning communities”
Students will profit from Globeducate’s “wide range” of international student events, such as Model United Nations, Academic Olympics, International Music Festival, Olympic Games, Student Leadership Conference, and a Visual Arts Festival, he noted.
“Our teachers will benefit from being able to join international learning communities focusing on Outdoor Learning, Reading and STEAM education, and Sustainability, who meet regularly online and sometimes in person. This gives the scope to share and learn from best practice within the group,” Andreou continued.
Each of PASCAL Education’s campuses – in Lefkosia, Lemesos and Larnaka – features an English-medium kindergarten, primary and secondary school. It also runs two secondary Greek-medium bilingual schools in Lefkosia and Lemesos.
