The campus of The Heritage Private School and Institute, with mountain and sea views, is an impressive sight along the Limassol to Troodos road, with over 1,200 culturally diverse students aged 2 to 19.
This Cyprus Ministry of Education approved and academically selective school aims to provide the same high quality of education as a well-respected UK private school.
Teaching is in English following the Cambridge Primary programme and the new UK National Curriculum, and qualifications include IGCSEs, A Levels and a formal School Leaving Certificate (Apolytirion) at the end of Year 13.
The Heritage is a Cambridge International Fellowship Centre and a centre for Cambridge and Pearson Edexcel International Examinations, as well as LCCI, DELF and Anglia examinations. The majority of students’ progress to university in the UK, Europe, and elsewhere in the world, with many achieving exceptional results and entry into leading universities, such as the University of Cambridge, MIT, Berklee College of Music, ESSEC and Sciences Po.
ICT is incorporated throughout the School, both as a core subject in the National Curriculum, but also through our iPad 1-1 programme, which requires all students in Years 3 – 9 to have an Apple iPad. We are highly satisfied with the way the programme has been integrated in the last few years into our curriculum. It is a modern approach to learning which allows for greater differentiation and a more independent, personalised, active and engaging learning experience for our students.
Academic excellence, personal and social development, respect, collaboration and strong self-discipline are all key aspects of the School’s ethos. Students are nurtured within a caring and appropriately orderly environment. The well-qualified and experienced staff aim to develop the full potential of every individual, with many academic and extracurricular activities to help everyone find their own niche.
Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their learning from an early age, and to always be proud of their efforts and achievements both academically and personally. Effective communication and collaboration between the School and home is strongly encouraged, as we believe that this is integral to the success of each student.

The School is committed to sustainable development and environmental initiatives, for which it holds eleven CY GPP environmental awards, a Green Office Award by CYMEPA and the Eco-Schools Green Flags. The classrooms in the innovatively-designed buildings have interactive whiteboards, heating and air conditioning, and are rich with stimulating educational displays.
The recent Technology Centre provides new classrooms, Science and ICT Laboratories, Fitness Centre, Cafe serving organic salads and wraps, and auditorium. The School also has specialist drama and dance studios, sound-insulated music rooms, an Innovation Lab with 3D Printer, tennis courts, cricket practice lanes, a FIFA Star 1 full-size football pitch, a Learning Resource Centre, and a Cafeteria serving home-cooked food.
The state-of-the art Multifunction Hall will host this year’s student musical theatre performance, ‘Chicago’. The stunning 1,200 seat outdoor Amphitheatre is used regularly for both school and community events. There is ample car parking, plus a school bus service.
The School is proud to hold the prestigious British Council International School Award (ISA) for “Outstanding Development of the International Dimension in the Curriculum”. The Heritage has consistently held ISA status since 2008 and we are the only School in Cyprus to have been re-awarded the ISA 2019-2022. ISA commended The Heritage for its ‘enthusiasm, commitment, creativity and innovative international work’.
Students of the School won an impressive 16 Cambridge Awards and Pearson Edexcel Outstanding Learner Awards following the Summer 2019 examination results. These prestigious awards are made each year by the examination boards in recognition of top-performing students.
