International schools operator Cognita has acquired Obersee Bilingual School (OBS) in Pfäffikon, Switzerland, which currently teaches just over 360 students.
OBS provides a bilingual education in German and English and becomes Cognita’s second school in Switzerland.
Uwe Feuersenger, managing director of OBS said Cognita was the ideal partner for this next phase of the school’s history, adding: “OBS and Cognita have a shared vision and conviction that learning in schools must evolve through the comprehensive use of technology and other future-oriented practice and content. Cognita already has good connections to the Swiss education system through Jacobs Holding, whose sole beneficiary is the Jacobs Foundation.”
Stuart Rolland, Cognita’s chief executive Europe, added: “OBS is an exceptional school with an innovative approach. Its focus on future-oriented learning with the support of technology complements our educational vision and we’re delighted to be welcoming OBS into the Cognita family.”
