TLC Private School is about to start its eighth year as one of the premier private schools on the island of Cyprus with an extraordinary history.
Its directors, Chris and Jill Watts originally came to the island to retire but, having been approached by expatriate families, they decided to open a small school offering what other schools were missing.
Eight years on, the school has gone from strength to strength with a student body of 180 young people from the ages of 3 to 18 and with a committed staff of over twenty experienced teachers who all have the future of the students at heart.
Having begun life in upper Peyia, two years ago, the school moved to larger premises at Agios Georgios and, after an extensive programme of improvements, is now able to offer a broad education with excellent facilities to students from the local and expatriate communities.
The school began with a set of core values, intrinsic to what it saw as being essential for the academic and social development of its students. Despite the growth in the school, it has retained its caring, family feel whilst providing rigour and challenge within the curriculum, supported by the dedicated teachers.
Recognising that school isn’t just about academia, TLC Private School has sought over the years to provide its students with the means to develop life skills such as teamwork and cooperation, resilience and adaptability through sport, art and community work.
As the school welcomes back its students year on year, it continues to look to the future and how it can further its mission to provide the best all-round education for its students, ably supported by the teachers, parents and the community.
The school’s popularity means that places are always at a premium and with many classes oversubscribed, parents need to be aware that securing your child’s school place early is essential.
