Hi all



I am looking to move to cyprus for a year or two and looking into schools for my 2 kids on 13 the other 7.



Does anyone have any further information on schooling in cyprus, i have had a look into Sunny Lane School, but cannot find out the fees for this.

Are there any other schools that teach the english curriculum?



any info will help please

The schools here will give an equivilant standard to any in the UK, opertunity for work on leaving school in N.Cyprus for a foreign kid is non existant so you would probably have to consider returning to the UK to get them on a decent career path. My advice stay at home till there off your hands, enjoy your hols until then.

Why don't you check out the International School in Paphos - I've heard it's got more expensive, but teaches English curriculum - also, being part of EU, there would be (limited) work opportunities for school leavers, or they can start their own business - not so in TRNC.

I have 2 children at "SunnyLane" age 10 & 13 and pay 665 8x Sept-april, although it may be slightly less for you, as your 2nd child is younger, hope this helps.

Hi Fayharty



Is that figure for both your children or each for the term?



How long have they been there and is the education good, it hard to get an impartial view on this.

I ma thinking of moving over for a year or two but do not what to disrupt the kids education too much.



Our move depend on the quality and cost of the kid education and then of cause the cost of rental properties.



thanks for any info you may have.



I was in Cyprus for 3 wks in August this year for a long earned break, so i know a little.

That figure will be the monthly instalment (paid over 8 months) for both kids for the whole year. It's another 360 per child per year for the bus.

Have a look at the following 2 post relating to this year's International GCSE results for Sunny Lane

The downside at the moment is that Sunny Lane only caters up to year 11 so the students have to go elsewhere to sit A levels. Most of year 11 students went back to UK to continue their studies.

You should visit Sunny Lane, English School of Kyrenia and GAU with your children and speak to as many parents as possible before making up your mind.
