English Gate School in Cantù, Italy, has joined Globeducate, one of the world's leading K12 education groups with 60+ premium bilingual and international schools, and online programmes, in 12 countries, educating 35,000 students. 

This prestigious bilingual international school for children aged one to 14 years old, offers an international environment where English language unites with Italian culture. Founded in 2010, the school has approximately 250 students with small classes and a long history of families choosing to stay from Nursery to the end of Middle School. Students come from Europe, the UK, USA, Canada, Greece, Switzerland, and India. 

The school programme is based on the International Curriculum (IPC) and incorporates the Italian Ministerial Programme, accredited with parità status, to guarantee a truly bilingual and international education which enhances a knowledge of Italian language and culture. English Gate School welcomes students from Monza, Como, Saronno, Lecco and Switzerland and, at the same time, attracts highly qualified native speakers from all over the world.

A wide range of co-curricular activities stimulate students at English Gate School and ensure they develop skills and knowledge beyond the classroom, with clubs for coding, music, art, German language, sports, and theatre. Traditional values are balanced with a commitment to looking to the future. 

Paddy Jansen, Chief Operations Officer of Globeducate said: “We are delighted to welcome English Gate School to Globeducate. Having spent considerable time with the team, it quickly became clear that the school's ethos and culture echoes that of other schools in Globeducate, particularly with the school's rich international community and focus on developing students to be global citizens. We are excited to work with our new colleagues and for them to join our global learning communities and for the children to join some of our Globeducate international events.”

Klodia Gaudino, Founding Head of School, said: “We are all excited about this new chapter in English Gate School's history. This will expand our students horizons by opening new doors to international events and exchanges with Globeducate schools in other countries and our teachers will share best practice with other prestigious Globeducate schools in Italy and can grow professionally through Globeducate learning communities and leadership programmes. The Globeducate Platinum Standard quality assessment and evaluation programme will also ensure the school's continued development.”
