The English School of Kyrenia is a leading private school for boys and girls aged 2 to 18, in Cyprus, offering a British-style education in an international environment. ESK has been developed through close contact with organisations responsible for some of the leading independent schools in the UK. The result is a state-of-the-art centre for learning which provides students with an international standard of education, comparable with the best schools in the world. Many schools deliver a British curriculum, but few enhance it! At ESK, we offer a fulfilling and diverse academic programme, that goes beyond the UK National Curriculum, delivered in a forward-thinking, intellectually challenging and supportive environment. We proudly stand as the first school in Cyprus to offer both the International Baccalaureate and A-Levels.
As an international school, we aim to nurture bilingual students and share the common IB World School philosophy — a commitment to a high quality and challenging international education. ESK students are taught to ask questions, work together and explore education through an inquisitive and open mindset.
Equally important is our beautiful 8 acre, leafy campus, providing students with an abundance of opportunities to learn, explore and reach their highest potential. An enviable and spacious learning environment, the campus is set in the inspiring surroundings of the Kyrenia foothills, overlooking the Mediterranean to the front and the Kyrenia mountains to the rear. The campus consists of a Little Learners building (Pre-Nursery), Eco-Building (Nursery – Year 2) Main Building (Year 3 – 13) and state-of-the-art facilities, including our newly developed Sixth Form Centre. Academic excellence and personal development flourish through the halls of the school. Our students aim to succeed academically, in sport, in the creative arts and in many other programmes such as community outreach. Whether it’s performing on stage, experimenting in the science lab or learning a new world language, ESK students are eager to learn.
Far more than just a school, ESK is Family. A high-quality education, a multi-cultural, global outlook and a strong family ethos result in a truly warm, welcoming and nurturing environnment for all who are involved with the school.
