At The Grammar School, we guide students according to global developments in areas such as technology, science and culture to prepare them for their chosen careers. The Grammar School’s friendly, safe environment, along with a range of cultural activities and school events, provides the foundations for an academic, student-oriented, all-round education’
Akis Gregoriou, Director General
Students attend lessons at the school premises which are located outside the city and away from the dangers and temptations which this entails. The spacious campus is designed to enhance the student experience, and modern facilities include a state-of-the-art Innovation Centre, Science, Robotics and Computer Labs, Cafeteria, extensive sports grounds and a swimming pool area. The school provides a bus service for the safe transportation of children to and from home.
education / advisors
The main objective of The Grammar School is to have a well-organised school community in which the teachers respect the students and the students respect their teachers and their peers as well as their environment. Special advisors offer their services to teachers and students and also undertake cases where counselling is needed.
At The Grammar School teachers not only teach their subject, but more importantly, they interact with students and assist where possible to resolve any issues that may arise. Their role is to guide students both morally and academically.
The Innovation Centre guides teachers to use technology and robotics in lessons. Thus students are taught through the use of innovative teaching technologies and methods which develop their abilities and enhance their academic, personal, social and cultural development. They learn to collaborate through the use of technology and increase their critical thinking and leadership skills.
The Grammar School Nicosia became the first Microsoft Showcase School in Cyprus in 2014 and is a pioneer in the use of technology as well as Robotics in the classroom through the school’s Innovation Centre. Teacher-student-parent communication is facilitated through the use of technology. During the Covid-19 lockdown, The Grammar School went online through Microsoft Teams in just 24 hrs. Parents also receive immediate information about the work their children have been assigned through GSNETlife. The school through its continuous effort for individual and collaborative learning, introduced the Bring Your Own Device 1:1 Tablet programme to align with modern digital learning practices.
Stem Programme (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics)
The Grammar School was the first school in Cyprus to incorporate STEM into its curriculum and has been implementing this since 2015. STEM programmes provide students with an important advantage for admission to universities worldwide. Students wishing to apply for this programme are selected based on their academic performance and examinations. NASA Chief Scientist Dr JL Green visited the school and joined the STEM class and informed students about the importance of the STEM programme in general. He also gave an open lecture to students and parents of the school.
The Grammar School has staged theatrical performances for decades and these have received awards in national competitions in Cyprus and Greece. The annual Grammar School Cultural Evening has become a strong tradition with two performances every year which are livestreamed. In 2017, to celebrate the School’s 55th anniversary, The Grammar School hosted renowned Greek composer, poet and singer Dionysis Savvopoulos who performed with the students during the Cultural Evening. The School also organises other activities such as the Talent Show, the Music Festival and Literature Workshops.
