As part of the partnership agreement, Kings Education will be recruiting international students via its international recruitment and marketing network.
Anthony Serio, superintendent of The Gilbert School, said the partnership with Kings Education is a “unique opportunity” to recruit students from a wide range of countries.
Andrew Hutchinson, Kings Education director with responsibility for recruitment, explained that the company expects strong interest from a number of source countries and regions.
“We believe The Gilbert School provides an ideal high school pathway as it offers outstanding level of support for international students,” he said.
“We are expecting particularly strong demand from Hong Kong, Korea, Russia, Brazil and Europe.”
The minimum level of English that international students will be required to demonstrate to gain admission to the school is TOEFL iBT 20, with the institution offering a broad range of English language courses that integrate with the main academic curriculum.
The school will offer a variety of programs for international students, including a Diploma Program and a one-semester Study Abroad Program for years 9 to 12 and an Accelerated Degree Program for years 11 and 12.
