The English School of Kyrenia (ESK) is a purpose-built modern IB World School offering exciting opportunities for academic excellence and personal development for boys and girls aged 3 to 18. An enviable and spacious learning environment, the school is set in the inspiring surroundings of the Kyrenia foothills, overlooking the Mediterranean to the front and the Kyrenia mountains to the rear.

A new Early Years Eco building was opened on the campus in September 2013. The building, which houses the school's youngest learners from Nursery to Year 2, aims to generate its own electricity requirements and seeks to provide all ESK students with a living example of green sustainability.

For the current 2017-18 academic year, ESK has 960 students drawn from both international and local backgrounds.

In September 2015, ESK opened a modern boarding house and welcomed its first intake of boarders.

The sections of the school are Early Years (Nursery age 3 and Reception age 4), Primary (Year 1 - Year 6 ) and Secondary (Year 7 - Year 13).

With the exception of Turkish and other language subjects, all classes are taught in English. The Early Years follow the UK's EYFS (Updated) curriculum and the Primary School follows the Cambridge International Primary Programme (CIPP). In the Secondary School the widely respected IGCSE, A-Level and International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme give students the opportunity to develop an international perspective and attend some of the world’s top universities.

Today's students are tomorrow’s leaders and decision makers: we afford every opportunity for our boys and girls to reach their personal and academic potential whilst nurturing their curiosity and encouraging individuality and creative thought.
