Egypt Education Platform coming to Soma Bay

The Egypt Education Platform (EEP) signed an MoU with Abu Soma Development (ASD) to develop and operate a school in Soma Bay under the GEMS International Schools brand, according to a press release (pdf). The cooperation comes as ASD aims to elevate Soma Bay as a permanent fully-integrated residential community by offering high-quality educational institutions in the Red Sea governorate, ASD CEO Ibrahim El Missiri said.

The Soma Bay school is expected to open its doors in September 2023 with a capacity for 600 students.

The GEMS brand has been expanding lately, most recently signing an MoU with the Sovereign Fund of Egypt to build and operate two national schools in West Cairo on SFE-owned land. “We are committed to our expansion plan ensuring we touch the lives of many families across Egypt, via providing a world-class education service,” commented EEP CEO Ahmed Wahby.

The EEP — which includes GEMS, EFG Hermes, and the SFE — has several educational brands under its umbrella with two more to be launched soon. These include GEMS International Schools, Prime National Schools, Hayah Schools Enterprise.
