Foley’s School was founded in 1970 by Ward and Pat Foley and originally opened in Famagusta, as Famagusta Grammar School. Within four years the school was well established, with a roll of about 200 pupils, all at secondary level. However, the invasion in 1974 forced the Foley family and all of the pupils to evacuate and, after several months camping in Dhekhelia, hoping to return to Famagusta, it became apparent that this would not be possible and the family moved to Limassol. Here they managed to gather together some of their former pupils and began re-establishing the school as Limassol Grammar and Junior School, which, over the years, became known locally as “Foley’s School.”
In 2016 an exciting new phase in the history of the school began, as the Primary section moved to brand new purpose-built premises in Agios Athanasios (Nikis Avenue), overlooking Limassol and the Akrotiri peninsula. Construction at the new site continued with the development of the Secondary School building and top-class sports facilities.
