In 1987 the school began with six students. With strong academic ethos and staff dedication, numbers increased, additional buildings were acquired, and new departments were  introduced. In 2007, the school moved  to its state-of-the-art campus on an impressive site with landscaped grounds on a hill along the main Limassol to Troodos road. Committed to sustainable development and environmental initiatives, the school was awarded the prize for Energy Efficient Building CY GPP 2018 for our new Technology building, which has a class A energy rating. We are the only school in Cyprus to hold current accreditation from the prestigious British Council International School Award. We continue to grow, thrive and flourish.
