Hi


Famagusta Area


Xenon high school is in Paralimni it is a private school lessons are taught in English or greek.

http://www.xenion.ac.cy/default.html

Ayios Nikolaos is on the base but it is very hard to get non entitled children in and they follow the british national curriculum, school fees are high aswell.

www.aynikprimary.sceschools.com

Larnaca Area

The schools in Larnaca are Med high and Junior
http://medhigh.com/

and American Academy

www.academy.ac.cy/

There is Dhekelia primary school which is on the base
www.dhekelia.sceschools.com

and King Ricard secondary school on the Dhelelia base too, again fees are high and hard to get non entitled children in.

www.kingrichard.sceschools.com

HTH

I was just looking at the Med High fees - an example for Pre-Primary is 2,500 Euros. Is that per term or is that for the whole year?

Phil and Maria--well done in asking questions about your childs education before you make the move.
From experience -the bases schools follow the uk curriculum-as a normal uk comprehensive school,and charge 3 times the price of the private schools -(I'm talking a good few years back!)
The private schools are the better option-both financially and in terms of your childs friends--on the bases kids move on after the 2/3 year posting and a new lot move in.
I only have experience of the American Academy in Larnaca-a caring,pupils come first environment,with no 'extra' lessons in the afternoons or weekends-ok, it costs but there are bursaries available -if I was moving here now--I would honestly make the same choice,beans on toast for tea--but your kids have only the one chance of a decent education,good luck with your decision .

Thanks for that, if you don't mind me asking, what are the AA fees currently, for pre school, if you know. I did notice tha the MedHigh times go right through the afternoon too, long day really but I guess if they are learning more...??

I am thinking to move, late next year, but my real concern is schooling and the little one! Oh and winning the lottery.... Very Happy

I know of quite a few families who have sent their kids to the AA and they have all graduated with the best paying jobs after Uni and they also got into some of the good University's as well.

The standards are that good I am going back 15 years though but have never heard a bad thing about the AA.

I think its more like the Eaton or Harrow of Cyprus, don't have any idea about the fees though or if there is an entrance exam to take.

One of the former students told me in conversation that the AA teach to Old English O' Level standards before GCSE's came out and that O'Level standards were much better than GCSE standards, as a non holder of either of the above certificates I would not know the difference.

Thanks Don, a grade A GCSE was equiv to a grade C old O levels....do you know as you move up the school do you have to take entrance exams. I understand you are not guaranteed a place in the various levels at MedHigh as you move from Junior to Senior etc

Phil & Maria"

Don't know if they have entrance exams, but I do recall when we were trying to get my son into the Haberdasher's Aske boys school Sixth form in Elstree back in 2004, they wanted six straight A's in GCSE including Maths & English and then they would consider an interview with the teachers of the sixth form and an entrance exam in each of the subjects he wanted to do.

When we arrived there was a women from Cyprus who wanted her son to go to the same school as my son, so we got talking and I asked her what school her son had attended in Cyprus and it was the AA, I then asked how many GCSE's he had and it was then she told me 3 O'Levels only.

Her son passed all th entrance exams with flying colours and got into Habs as well with only 3 O'Levels where as mine had to have a min of 6 staright A's, it was then that I thought that the O'Level standard which the AA teach in Cyprus must be higher than our GCSE's our kids learn back in the UK.

Hope that helps you.

Don

Phil and Maria---sorry,can't help with current fees ,my two finished there 12 and 14 years ago-they do have a website though.
Amarican Academy Larnaca is the one you want-not Limassol and Paphos .
Junior school through to senior is not 'guaranteed'-and moving up to the next class is dependant on a pass mark in end of year exams.
However,junior pupils seem to be automatically given preferential admittance,unless they are deemed unable to master senior school tuition.
