he Primary Department provides education from Years 1 to Year 6 and works towards the objectives laid down within the British Curriculum, adapted in social studies for the needs of the multicultural community in Cyprus, thus offering students a well-rounded international education.


Single form entry school in each of the six year groups provides for up to 25 children in each class.  Key stage 1 of the British National Curriculum covers Years 1 and 2 and Key Stage 2 covers Years 3 to 6.


The Primary students develop and strengthen their skills in the following core subjects; Literacy, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) and Art. Each of these subjects is taught by the class teachers.  Specialist teachers provide Greek, Physical Education, Music, Religious Education and ICT lessons, with the addition of French in Years 5 and 6.


First language Greek speakers are taught using the curriculum set by the Ministry of Education and Culture of the Republic of Cyprus.  Greek is also taught as an additional language to all other students.


Any child joining the school with limited English spends a proportion of their week learning English as an additional language (EAL) with the help of a specially trained teacher.


Main curriculum subjects are supplemented and supported by a range of age related after school activities including drama, karate, art, music and sports.  A club is also available for after school homework support.
