Aug 11, 2020
GMR Hyderabad Aerotropolis Limited (GHAL) has joined hands with Hyderabad-based Saint Mary’s Educational Society to set up a Sancta Maria International School as part of the upcoming 100-acre edu port cluster at Hyderabad airport. GHAL is a wholly-owned subsidiary of GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd (GHIAL), which runs the Hyderabad international airport at Shamshabad.
The residential academic facility, which will be the second K12 (kindergarten to 12th) Sancta Maria International School in the city, is slated to come up on a 15-acre parcel of land at Hyderabad Airport City by 2022, GMR Group said on Monday. GMR said the collaboration is part of GHAL’s efforts to ramp up the edu port to create a world-class knowledge hub housing global and Indian institutes.
The edu port, which is emerging as a centre of learning, training, research and innovation, already hosts the Schulich School of Business, Chinmaya Vidyalaya, GMR Aviation Academy, Flight Simulation Technique Centre (FSTC), CFM South Asia Training Center and Pratt & Whitney India Training Center.
Commenting on the development, Aman Kapoor, CEO, Airport Land Development, GMR Group said, “The tie-up aligns with GMR Group’s vision to develop an educational cluster with world class academic and research institutions offering an ecosystem of high quality education with transformative powers that will go a long way in bridging the skill gap and creating global leaders in tandem with dynamic market needs and business environment.”
