We are delighted to welcome Mougins School to Globeducate. A highly regarded British international school for students age 3 to 18, located in the Côte d´Azur, this latest addition becomes our third international Globeducate school in the South of France.
A member of the Council of British International Schools (COBIS) and recognised for its excellence by the Independent Schools Council and Cambridge Assessment International Education, Mougins School offers the British Curriculum, adapted to an international community. Graduating students follow higher education pathways at some of the world´s leading universities.
The School has been on its present site since 1987; a state-of-the-art green, landscaped campus with play and quiet areas, and specialist facilities, near the high-technology park of Sophia Antipolis, known as the Silicon Valley of the South of France. All lessons are taught in English, the language of the playground, but the school welcomes nearly 500 children from 42 nationalities.
The school has specialist Performing Arts facilities as well as a synthetic football pitch, sports court for games, science laboratories and the Millennium Building for classrooms and administration.
Brian Hickmore, Interim Principal said, “There has never been a more important time to develop a sense of global citizenship and an understanding of others. This is the essence of Mougins School and complements the vision of Globeducate to prepare each student to be a global citizen who can shape the world. Mougins is a true British International School with an active House system and vibrant Arts, Music and Sporting provision and we are delighted to join the Globeducate family.”
CEO of Globeducate France, Line Vissot-Weil, said, “Mougins School offers an exceptional level of education, reflected in the higher education destinations of its students. We look forward to working closely with the team there and know that ICS Côte d´Azur families will welcome this new post-11 pathway. I know that everyone at Globeducate will give Mougins staff and families a warm welcome. We would like to thank Mr Kyle Baker and the Rafael family for entrusting Globeducate with the future development and growth of this dynamic school community and for working with us to ensure a smooth transition.
