Welcome to our Home Page

Our School is the oldest in the London Borough of Islington.  It was established in 1972 by our honorary director Dr. Katerina Alexandrou.  In 1996 the school was declared as one of the best supplementary schools in the European Union and on 26/05/06 the BBC  presented a special program devoted to the activities and achievements of our school.

As from 2005 our school has been able to use independent premises due to the generosity of our great benefactor the late Mrs. Theodosia Papatheodotou.  We bless her memory for her generous action.

Our school has also adopted a modern method of teaching the Greek language through the medium of computers, which above all helps pupils and students to improve their competence in being bilingual.
