The purchase of the former Nord Anglia school follows GEMS' acquisition of Nord Anglia's UK portfolio of schools in June earlier this year, firmly establishing GEMS as one of the leading providers of private British education. The move, part of a strategic plan to establish GEMS schools around the world, represents GEMS' initial move into Continental Europe.

Hugh MacPherson, Chief Operating Officer said: “At GEMS, we have international expertise in managing a full range of school formats. This acquisition represents a significant move forward for GEMS, enabling it to further extend its global presence. The GEMS experience of transferring best practice between schools enables us to develop a strong and successful network of which The British International School, Berlin, will now be a part.”
