Dubai’s Horizon English School is embarking on a $3 million investment to improve facilities in the school after it joined Cognita, one of the world’s leading education groups, earlier this year.

The improvements include upgrading IT infrastructure and EdTech, the implementation of a one-to-one device programme for students, as well as installation of football pitch and refurbishment of other sports facilities.

Upgrades to the school’s air conditioning and fire safety system will also take place. 

Horizon was acquired by Cognita from Al Najah Education in March.

The school, based in Al Safa, Dubai, and founded in 1989, was previously owned by Dubai-based Al Najah Education from 2012.

UK-headquartered Cognita owns 85 schools in 12 countries. It’s majority owner is Jacobs Holding AG, a global investment firm based in Switzerland.
