The  Junior School was established in 1944 by the British Council. The school remained under the direction of the British Council until 1948, when it became a non-profit making company incorporated  in  Cyprus, known as The Junior School.

In 2003 the Senior School was established, extending education from 12 to 19 years old and incorporating study for IGCSE and A level qualifications. Due to a rise in pupil numbers and a  need for improved buildings,  in March 2016 the school moved to a new site in Latsia. A new annex with eight new classrooms has recently opened on the Senior School site.
