HISTORY

The   Falcon   School was founded in 1976 by Mr. and Mrs. Ierides as a place where children of all nationalities and creeds could live and learn joyfully together in a spirit of mutual respect and tolerance. Over the past 40 years, the school has continued to add to its impressive facilities and is in the middle of an ambitious renovation project. The school has always cherished traditional values but we also aim to prepare our students for the challenges of the modern world.

Falcon graduates have high aspirations, aiming at Russell Group universities in the UK, the Ivy League in the USA, and top EU universities. In recent years Falcon students have taken up places at Oxford, Cambridge, Durham, LSE, Imperial and many other top-ranked universities to study a truly broad range of subjects including Medicine, Law, Natural Sciences, Mathematics and Modern Languages in addition to practical and vocational subjects.

The Falcon School is very proud of the achievements of its alumni. One graduate was recently in the 2018 Forbes list of the 30 most successful entrepreneurs under 30; another was the only undergraduate in all Cyprus to gain a place at Oxford University in 2016; others occupy high profile positions in universities around the world or in international business.

No matter where Falcon students go on to study or work, the school continues to offer support in the form of counselling
