Junior School Nicosia A Hit For People Buying Cyprus Property

--- There is no doubt that families moving to Cyprus from the UK are spoilt for choice if they want their children to slot into an English speaking education system that will prepare them for UK universities.

Cyprus has always taken education very seriously and in recent years we have seen some heavy investment in private education on the island, particularly in schools that teach the English curriculum. There is now a huge choice and often the right school will determine where people ultimately decide to buy their property in Cyprus.

Mick Cordell from Buy Abroad commented, "Clients always have education at the top of their list when they are moving to Cyprus with a family, and often they first want to look at schools before even considering where to buy a property".

One of the best on the island is the English School in Nicosia, which was founded in 1900 by Canon Frank Dervall Newham and is regarded by many as the leading private English speaking school in Cyprus; as you would expect, the entrance criteria is quite rigid.

Larnaca also has a good choice of schools, with the American Academy offering a good standard of education. Name notwithstanding, this school follows the UK curriculum which means that pupils from the UK can slot back in to the UK education system should the family move back to England. Also in Larnaca you will find the Pascal School, situated on Polytechniou Road, which also has a reputation for academic success.

For those looking farther south there is the Paphos International School which in recent years has moved to a new purpose-built site just outside Paphos. One thing to consider here is that the average price of property in Paphos will be 10-15% more expensive than property in Larnaca.
