St. John's School was established in 1960, just after Cyprus gained independence from the British. The school celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2010.[1] It was founded to exclusively educate children within the military community but has since opened its doors to a small number of local English-speaking expatriate children.

Academics and School Activities

Like all SCE schools, St. John's follows the National Curriculum and is regulated by Ofsted.[2] In the 2007 inspection it was rated good and satisfactory in all aspects.

St. John's is a coordinator school of the Cyprus Music Service which runs music programmes and lessons for SCE schools in Cyprus.[3]
