Xenion High School was established in 2001 and was the culmination of more than 20 years of hard work and development of expertise in education. The school has an excellent academic record with Xenion students among the best in the country, or even the world, every year.  100% of our year 7 students secure places at universities in Cyprus, Greece, the UK, the US and Europe. The Junior School was opened in 2014 in response to demand from parents for a private primary school in the area and since its opening the roll has grown by around 25% each year.
