A Proud Member of Globeducate
Globeducate is one of the leading international K12 education groups in the world, a network of 55+ premium bilingual and international schools, as well as online programmes, educating 31,000 students in ten countries.
A Globeducate school creates opportunities to connect with students from our schools across the world to come together, in person or online, for sport, music, arts, academic challenges and to work with others to help build a more equal, fair and sustainable world. Our teachers benefit from regional and international learning community professional development.
“We prepare each student to become a global citizen who can shape the world”
Connecting young minds and spirits for a global perspective
The world is changing at an incredible pace and education has to keep up with this constantly shifting environment. Our students can only succeed in tomorrow´s world if they are well prepared for the challenges they will face in their future professional and personal lives. In addition to providing an excellent academic education, we ensure that our students develop skills and abilities beyond the purely academic and lay down a solid, values-based foundation for life.
Our Key Principles
Globeducate´s educational vision is based on four fundamental principles: Educational Excellence, Skills and Competencies, Character and Global Perspectives.
Our People Values
In order to bring our group key principles to life, we strive for our people to Be excellent, Be Supportive, Be a pioneer and to Be Global.
As educators at Globeducate, we have the opportunity and responsibility to lay the foundations for a better future and this begins with a robust response to the pace of change we see in the world and to the approach we take to sustainability education.
Watch this short film explaining Globeducate's mission to address the social, economic and environmental challenges that are re-shaping our communities across the world.
Globeducate has developed a Global Agenda to bring our vision to life in classrooms. Through partnerships with WWF and Eco-Schools, we can fulfil our mission to address the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Taking action today to protect tomorrow
Our global partnership with leading conservation charity WWF sees us collaborating across the school network. With the WWF having played a key role in identifying the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, it is a natural partnership for Globeducate.
Working closely with the WWF Education Team, all Globeducate schools have a calendar of events and learning opportunities. The WWF supports Globeducate by sourcing inspirational speakers and experts and offers unique opportunities for these events. Additionally, Globeducate works closely with the WWF in providing teacher training in sustainability education.
“It is truly inspiring to see the huge amount of work Globeducate schools around the world do to prioritise sustainability and work for the good of the planet. Their imaginative ideas show the passion and commitment there is across the network and it is clear that Globeducate are inspiring and empowering a wave of young environmental leaders.”
Sophie Peckham, WWF Education Manager
Student-led action for a sustainable future
Eco-Schools is the world's largest sustainability education programme and it offers an accessible framework for schools. Globeducate schools are all committed to being Eco-Schools and to achieving and retaining Green Flag status.
In ICS London, our students and teachers work with their Eco-School committees and come up with inspiring ways to mark globally recognised eco events such as Earth Hour, Earth Week and Earth Day. These days unite our whole Globeducate family as our students and teachers from across different age groups and cultures share what they have done with their contemporaries and families.
At the heart of our Globeducate vision — we prepare students to be global citizens who can shape the world — lies our commitment to equipping students with the skills and knowledge necessary to make their own impact on the future.
Science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics play a crucial part in every young Globeducate student´s learning journey. We work with LEGO ® Education and, in our Globeducate schools to support our STEAM Programme.
Inspiring students to make a valuable contribution to the world through global events
Globeducate schools across the world join together for a series of annual international events.
Throughout the year, Globeducate regularly organises events and invites students and teachers from across our network to attend or, where possible, participate remotely.
Our events are organised into three areas:
- Globeducate Events (Seven global events)
- Globeducate Agenda (WWF, Eco-Schools, Debates)
- Globeducate Learning Communities
This approach allows everyone to see how different events link to create the best possible experiences for our students all over the world.
