The school was founded in 1970 by Ward and Pat Foley in Famagusta. In 1974, after the invasion, it moved to Limassol and both Primary and Secondary sections of the school were based at the Homer Street premises. However,  in an exciting development last year the primary section (Pre-Reception – Year 6) moved to new, state-of-the-art premises in Ayios Athanasios (Nikis Avenue). The building work at this brand-new site continues, with new sports facilities almost completed – including a large sports hall, a 25m swimming pool and a 300m athletics track surrounding an astroturf football pitch.  The construction of the secondary section of the school is now in the final stages and we will all be moving in September 2019.
