THE ENGLISH SCHOOL OF KYRENIA
an exceptional school
Many schools deliver a British curriculum, but few enhance it. At ESK, we offer a fulfilling and diverse co-curriculum, that goes beyond the UK National Curriculum. Our dynamic curriculum provides students with a wide range of subject options, allowing them to discover their talents and interests. Students follow both the British and International education Systems and all our classes, except for modern foreign language subjects, are taught in English.
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. The philosophy and ethos of a school provide a very important dimension in the development of the whole person. Students are encouraged to understand the importance of Honesty, Sincerity, Respect and Integrity, in all that they do, and to this end, our school builds on character as well as academic ambition and love of learning.

"Being a student at ESK was more than just studying. It makes you feel like you are at home. My favorite thing about ESK is the close relationships that are developed with both the students and the teachers. ESK means family for me. I'm so lucky to be an ESK graduate. Thank you for everything."
