Student support:  TLC Private School students benefit from being part of a small nurturing community where they are supported and challenged to meet their social, emotional and educational potential.  The school embraces diversity and has a community of students with a wide range of skills and abilities. The school’s motto, ‘Every Child Matters’ ensures that each child’s needs are catered for. In support of this, while being a non-selective school we evaluate needs at entry in Mathematics and English in order to tailor provision and ensure that students are appropriately challenged to make the progress of which they are capable.


TLC Private School is in its ninth year and has emerged as one of the premier private schools on the island of Cyprus with an  extraordinary history. Its directors, Jill and Chris Watts, originally came to the island to retire but,  having been approached by expatriate families, decided to open a small school to complement the choices available at that time. Nine years on, the school has gone from strength to strength with students from the age of 2.5 to 18 and with a committed staff of over fifty experienced teachers who all have the future of the students at heart.

Having begun life in upper Peyia nine years ago, the school moved to large premises in Agios Georgios and, after an extensive programme of improvements, is now able to offer a broad education with excellent facilities to students from the local area.
