The Main Building: originally built in 1954, the building that most casual passers-by think of as ‘The building with the Arch’, has recently been renovated to a high specification. The completed building includes fourteen classrooms, each around 60m2, with air conditioning, good natural light, wooden floors and a high quality of finish. Each classroom has an Interactive Whiteboard, which were initially provided by our PTA. There are several ‘rechargeable trolleys’ with laplets available for the children to use to support their learning. Specialist facilities include a multipurpose hall and performance space, specialist teaching areas for learning support, the administrative areas and a large and well-equipped library.
The Junior School Library: the library has a stock of over 24,000 books and serves all 816 pupils from Early Years to Year 6. The library is split into two sections, KS1 and KS2 and has a very large collection of both fiction and non-fiction books in English and Greek. The library employs a full-time librarian. Each class is allocated one 40 minute lesson a week during which they change their books and listen to stories/poems, etc. Every child takes home both English and Greek books. The librarian also manages the KS2 reading scheme, providing three books at a time to be changed once read. Throughout the year the librarian also runs book sales, overseas book sales and several competitions as well as special book-related events, for example during Book Week.
The Annex: built in the early 1960s, the original annex was recently demolished and a completely new annex was completed in September 2015. The annex faces the sports fields and forestry land and across three floors it houses 24 classrooms, a staffroom, a nurse’s station and a basement that includes an additional hall, two dedicated music rooms, offices and a fully equipped computer lab. Every classroom has an interactive whiteboard, heating, cooling and air circulation. The annex is also equipped with a lift to enable disabled access and a toilet for the disabled. Younger children have classrooms on the ground floor, which include ensuite toilets and an enclosed shaded play area outside.
