HYDERABAD: GEMS (Global Education Management Systems), a UK-based school network, has entered the Indian education market by launching British International School at Peddapuram in West Godavari district. GEMS, which manages over 50 schools the world over, would manage an existing school in tune with international standards.

Announcing the arrival of GEMS into India, Mr Shashank Vira, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of GEMS, told newspersons that the residential school would have 10-12 students a class. "The number would never cross 20," he added.

The wifi-enabled school would have digital microscopes and flexible cameras that enhance learning experience.

"We will charge Rs 1.5 lakh a year. We are working with banks to provide loans," said Mr Vira.
