Curriculum

The main curriculum of Xenion Junior School is a modified one which includes the best of both the Cypriot National Curriculum and British Key Stages 1 and 2. A sensible balance of the two ensures that our Cypriot students cover the National curriculum every bit as fully as their peers in state schools. In addition, Xenion Junior School offers a broader education, including fluency in English and other languages, with a wider, more European character that meets the needs of our international students. A Preparation Course is offered to international students who speak neither Greek nor English, in order to prepare them for their studies.
