Welcome to Foley's School website. The school is private, independent, multinational and co-ed. We are a British day-school with an international enrolment catering for all age groups from 4 years (Reception) to 18 or 19 years (A levels and university entrance). Normally around 45 different nationalities are represented, although a large majority have English as a mother tongue. English is the language of instruction. The school is formally licensed by the Cyprus Ministry of Education.
I hope that browsing through the web site gives you a 'feel' for the ethos of the school and provides all the information you require. If there is anything you need to know that is not covered here, please do not hesitate to contact us directly.

MEDIMUN Fifteen students from Forms 5 and 6 attended the MEDIMUN conference, held at the European University, Nicosia (9th-11th February). Conference topics debated included, among others, the question of: contemporary international espionage, combating the pollution of space, global mass surveillance by governments and defining gender in the contemporary age. Several of the Foley’s students/delegates managed to pass their resolutions successfully, often after heated debating sessions! One of the resolutions was also chosen for the Plenary Session on the final day of the conference. It was based on the "Question of the Economics of Gender Discrimination" and submitted by Anastasia Popova. We would like to congratulate all our participants and hope that the issues they debated will be ones they will carry on fighting for in the years to come. Thanks, once again, to the English School Nicosia for organizing the event
Award-winning BBC journalist and presenter Emilia Papadopoulos, visited the school on Monday 5th Febraury to talk to pupils about careers in journalism. In an entertaining and inspiring talk, peppered with amusing anecdotes from her experiences since leaving school, Emilia also passed on a great deal of excellent advice on how to deal with the highs and lows which you inevitably face on the road to success. Emilia is, we are proud to say, a former pupil.
