They will join the family of 55 schools and online programs in nine countries, and will be the network’s fifth school in Italy.
The provider also owns ICS Milan, RIS Rome, Southlands British International School and the Canadian School of Florence.
“BES had all of the qualities we look for in a Globeducate school and was a natural choice for our expansion in Milan,” Luca Uva, the provider’s CEO, said.
Thanking managing director of both schools, Luca Paloschi, for his working integrating the schools with Globeducate, Uva added, “We share a vision and are very pleased to start this new journey together.”
Executive head of the British American Pre-School and a member of the Bilingual European School leadership team, Deborah Chilver, added joining the network was “an easy decision”.
“Our teachers share the Globeducate vision of developing students to be global citizens”
Founded in 1987, BAPS specialises in Early Years education for children aged two to six and BES has provided primary and middle school education since 1999. Together, the schools cater to more than 500 students.
“Our teachers share the Globeducate vision of developing students to be global citizens, to shape the world and, as an IB school, we believe in learning by doing,” Chilver said.
“At the core of everything we offer an authentic, outstanding bilingual school experience and a child-centred philosophy with a global perspective. Our whole school community is looking forward to joining together with other Globeducate schools as part of global competitions, festivals and learning communities.”
