Excellence beyond the classroom
Most people know about The English School because of its academic reputation. However, there is also a fantastic range of opportunities in clubs, societies, sport, music and drama and we place enormous importance on every student being able to find activities which he or she enjoys and which make them feel successful. All teachers in the school actively participate in the running of at least one co-curricular organisation meaning that the range of possibilities is vast.
Music plays a major role in the life of The English School and there is a range of choirs, orchestras and Instrumental groups in which all students can participate at their own level. The highlight of the year is The English School's legendary Talent Night! Drama is another high profile area with plays being performed each year in English, Greek and Turkish and for those Interested in the technical side of theatre, there is an opportunity to develop sound and lighting skills in both these areas.
The English School has one of the highest sporting reputations in Cyprus. There are excellent facilities for football, athletics, volleyball, basketball, softball, hockey, tennis and cross-country. As well as the school teams, a range of sporting contents take place throughout the year where students compete for one of the four school houses: Newham, Beaconsfield, Wolseley and Kitchener involving everyone in some serious fun.
