International schools group Globeducate has acquired Granada College, a bilingual international school in Spain.
Granada College began life as the Príncipes nursery school in 1993 and 22 years ago extended its provision to children over the age of four. It currently caters to 1,000 students up to the age of 18.
The school prepares its pupils for Cambridge International examinations and focuses on multilingualism, with students given the opportunity to study French and Chinese in addition to taking lessons in English and Spanish.
The school has an assembly hall, covered pavilion, outdoor swimming pool, judo room, three multi-sports courts, a football field and a climbing wall.
The school´s founder, Javier Jimenez, said: “When you think about it and take a look at the past, you see what Granada College has meant to so many families and you realise the effort and professionalism of all the teaching and non-teaching staff who have participated in the school´s growth.
“With our confidence rooted firmly in our successful educational model, it is time to develop further and to embrace new challenges in search of educational excellence. 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.”
Carolina Rodriguez Inciarte, chief executive of Globeducate Spain and Andorra said: “Granada College is a school that offers a very high level of education, with academic results placing them among the top three schools in the region consistently. We truly admire what Mr Jiménez and his team have accomplished over the past 20 years and look forward to working with them to ensure we provide all their students with a global education that prepares them to change the world.”
