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.
The ESK Mission Statement:
The English School of Kyrenia endeavours to develop young people who are principled, inquiring and open-minded communicators with a lifelong love of learning. We aim to inspire students to serve as compassionate global citizens through our challenging international educational programme.

Being a student at ESK was more than just studying. It makes you feel like you are at home. My favourite 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.
I congratulate our school management, our teachers, and our families who support their children in parallel with the school. ESK is raising confident individuals who have ambitions and dreams, to succeed not just academically but with a positive vision for the future of our community and world. I am very happy that my child joined the ESK family in year 1, from the beginning of the journey. I congratulate you all.
Watching my child's successful and happy development at ESK makes me wish I could go back to school again!
Today I got accepted into the University of Cambridge to study Medicine, where only 21 international places are given every year. ESK helped me in every step, turning my dreams into goals.
Academic excellence is the core of ESK's success. Future global leaders develop in an outstanding educational environment, and thrive in top universities across the world. Cyprus is fortunate to have access to the world-class education ESK offers.
