The English School of Kyrenia

The English School of Kyrenia is a new school that attempts to meet the educational needs of Northern Cyprus combining the traditional values of the English education system with the modern facilities required for success in the 21st century. Facilities for supporting learning are joined by facilities for sport and the creative arts.

The Prep and Pre-Prep School opened in September 2008. For the academic year 2008-9, the school was housed in a historical building located next to the Archive Offices near the centre of Kyrenia.

A brand-new purpose-built school is under construction in Bellapais. The school and its campus will provide the most up-to-date and extensive facilities of any school on the island, north or south. The new buildings will open for both Primary and Secondary pupils of all ages from September 2009.

The school curriculum in the Early Years encourages the development of active and inquisitive learning. Children are guided to become independent learners through their home language (Turkish) and English.

Classes are in English to enable pupils to gain fluency, whether as a first or second language. There is also a tutor who teaches Turkish formally to the older children regularly throughout the week. By the end of the pre-prep school the aim is for pupils to be able to converse comfortably in both languages.

In the Pre-Prep school the children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. As they move to the Prep classes they transfer to the Cambridge International Primary Programme supported by the British National Curriculum. The Senior School curriculum from September 2009 will prepare for entrance to universities in Europe, including the UK, and North America, through the International Baccalaureate programme.
