St John’s School is a small but vibrant 11-18 state secondary school serving the military community in British Forces Cyprus (BFC) as well as the local British, ex-pat community. We have wonderful facilities in excellent school buildings which overlook the Mediterranean Sea in Episkopi (Western Sovereign Base Area); click here to see what our school looks like or watch our school video. With such excellent learning conditions we expect and achieve excellent results.

As a Ministry of Defence School we are used to high levels of student mobility and make it our aim to personalise our curriculum as far as possible to ensure success for all. In addition to children from Service families, we also have a small number of fee paying students at each school who join us from the local Cypriot and ex-pat communities. Whether you are entitled to a free place or wish to join us as a fee paying student, details can be found here about the application process.

Our aim is to ensure that students are happy and that learning is collaborative and engaging in every lesson. All staff and students embrace our core values of Excellence, Learning and Leadership and we know that it is these qualities that will help them be resilient, successful, and responsible in their lives whilst living in Cyprus and beyond. Furthermore, our extra-curricular programme is integral to the offer that we make to our students. This includes; MOD Schools Music Service, Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, Model United Nations and a huge range of sports such as paddle boarding, football and swimming.

MOD Schools are part of the Directorate for Children and Young People (DCYP) in the UK Ministry of Defence. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to learn more or view our prospectus.

I very much look forward to welcoming you to our fantastic school soon.
