A Brief History of the School

The Grammar School 50th Anniversary - 50 Years in Retrospect

Following the successful establishment of Cyprus College in 1961, Ioannis and Iro Gregoriou founded the Grammar School in 1963.

In 1966 both the Grammar School and its boarding school moved to the privately owned premises on a hill near the Nicosia Airport, that later became known as the “Gregoriou Hill.”

In 1970 the Grammar Junior School was founded and two years later the Grammar School became a 7-year education school. The total number of students enrolled increased from 95 to 1200 in 9 years.

During the Turkish invasion in 1974 our school was bombed and consequently occupied by the Turks. For the following eight years the school operated under adverse conditions in rented premises.

In 1981 the Grammar School moved to new privately owned premises in Anthoupolis and three years later, in 1984, Ioannis Gregoriou passed away. Management of the school passed on to his wife Iro Gregoriou, his brother Gabriel Gregoriou and his daughter Sylvana Eleftheriadou and in 1985 his son, Akis Gregoriou, was appointed Director General by the Board of Directors. In 1991 Iro Gregoriou passed away.

Meanwhile the school continued to progress and expand. A variety of clubs and extracurricular activities were introduced, like our renowned Cultural Evening and the Theatre Performance among a plethora of others.

Moreover, new premises were added which include the swimming pool, new administration buildings, laboratories and new sports grounds.

Our students are equipped with academic skills which enable them to excel in all aspects of their lives. They are awarded with International prizes in examinations and competitions and are accepted in prestigious universities. All these qualifications enable them to succeed in their chosen careers and it is not surprising that we find a great number of our students in important positions in the government and the business, the academic as well as the medical world.

Our School’s vision is to prepare its students for their future through technology. This is why the Grammar School has always worked hard to keep up with the latest technological advancements. Our latest additions include internet access all over the school premises and lessons are carried out as electronic classrooms with the help of projectors, interactive whiteboards and laptops provided by the school to each teacher. The school now has a Facebook page which students, teachers, parents and alumni can follow. This year the Grammar School introduced an innovative collaboration with Microsoft to establish an IT Academy and is the first school to become a Microsoft Office Specialist Testing Centre in Nicosia. Finally, we will soon implement Microsoft Office 365, a virtual workplace which allows students, teachers and parents to keep track of their lessons, assignments and school activities. We believe that giving our students cutting-edge technology will make them tomorrow’s leaders.

To celebrate our 50th Anniversary our school is organizing a number of activities.
