PASCAL Education (Cyprus) Ltd., the largest group of K12 English and Bilingual schools in Cyprus, joined Globeducate on 10th August.
This leading schools group in Cyprus, with 3,000 students and 11 schools across three campuses, comprises both day and boarding schools and an accredited International Baccalaureate World School. PASCAL Schools are fully recognised by the Cyprus Ministry of Education and Culture and the organisation has 350 members of staff.
The schools include three English-medium kindergartens, three primary English-medium schools, three secondary English-medium schools and two secondary Greek-medium bilingual schools located across three campuses in the cities of Lefkosia, Lemesos and Larnaka.
The schools are Cambridge International Examinations and Pearson Edexcel exam centres and in 2022, PASCAL students achieved a 100 per cent pass rate on the IBDP with an average score of 34 points. In 2021, the IGCSE Pass rate stood at 94 per cent and, for A-Levels, 92 per cent. Every year, more than 250 students graduate from PASCAL Schools and go on to study at some of the highest-ranking universities in Europe, USA, and Canada, including Russell Group universities in the UK such as Cambridge University and Imperial College London, and in North America, University of Toronto and Brown University.
Chief Executive Officer of Globeducate Luca Uva said: “We are very excited to be welcoming PASCAL Education to Globeducate and to extending our global community to include a new part of the world for us as a group. We now have schools in 10 countries and are looking forward to working with our new colleagues in Cyprus.
“Our conversations with the management team of PASCAL Education quickly highlighted many shared values and goals, and I believe this will be a dynamic and important step in the future growth of both organisations. Schools in Globeducate specialise in a variety of highly respected international curricula including the English National Curriculum and International Baccalaureate, as well as national curricula for Canada, France, India, Italy, Malaysia, Portugal and Spain, and our students achieve high grades and go on to higher education programmes at 25 of the world´s top 50 universities.”
Mr Pantelis Andreou, President of PASCAL Education (Cyprus) Ltd., said: “We strongly believe that this is a very positive development that will guarantee the growth of our organisation in Cyprus, modernising our structures and practices, bringing in new expertise and know-how, and upgrading our services.
“Being a member of Globeducate will bring many benefits to our schools – for our students and teachers; notably the wide range of international student events organised by Globeducate, including Model United Nations, Academic Olympics, International Music Festival, Olympic Games, Student Leadership Conference, and a Visual Arts Festival.
“Our teachers will benefit from being able to join international learning communities focusing on Outdoor Learning, Reading and STEAM education, and Sustainability, who meet regularly online and sometimes in person. This gives the scope to share and learn from best practice within the group.”
