Hi all.As a family wishing to live in north cyprus i was wondering if anyone knows of any english schools in the Girne area.I have been advised to look into private education as other school hours are mornings only for 4 hours.My two girls are 7 and 4.

If anyone could reccomend any schools to visit while we holiday in june and any sort of pricings would be great.

Hope someone could help us.

Many thanks in advance

Both my daughters attended GAU (Girne American University) Lower School and College. Up until September

of last year. The eldest did her IGCSE's (6) and A-Levels (2.5 - 5xAS) there and came out with very good results, as such she has now enroled at Kingston University in the U.K. We have since enroled my youngest at

Sunny Lane and so far we are pleased with the change. Sunny Lane will be changing its name to The British Academy of Northern Cyprus for the start of the new term in September. Fees will be around the 3,000+

at Sunny Lane (BANC) but you will get a reduction for siblings. GAU's fees are around the 4,000+ and was one of the reasons we changed schools last year. Most importantly, you must visit these schools before you commit yourselves. Have a look around, talk to the students and teachers where possible, get a feel for them.

Good luck...

If you want private education it has to be The English School of Kyrenia. But for young kids let them make local friends at local schools while they can - there are private places that will look after kids when the school closes at lunchtime and will save you a fortune on school fees!!



Like the Professor said above - have a look around and ask other people before making a decision.



GOOD LUCK,

G

I can recommend Colourland Prep School in Zeytinlik (where my son goes) and Miss Judy's School in Karaoglanoglu for the four year old. Not had any experience with schools for older children though. Echoing what other people have already said though - ask a lot of people then visit the schools personally to see which is best for your children.
