Overall it is fully equipped with the appropriate facilities for all students and teachers.
Its premises overlook the city of Limassol. These premises consist of attractive lecture rooms with proper lighting, central heating, all for the sake of the students’ comfort.

There are also some indoor and outdoor courts for basketball, volleyball and football.
Apart from the students’ academic skills, our school gives emphasis to other comprehensive activities as well the students have the opportunity to develop their various talents in drama, sports, cycling, environmental issues, music and in many other similar activities. Throughout their school life, the pupils take part in numerous national competitions. Last year the school was awarded with the 1st place prize in Research by High School Students 2012 competition which was conducted by the University of Nicosia. Moreover, the school runs projects such as the young reporters’ project for the environment, Eco schools, ENO and well-being.
We are looking for a school partner, who is interested in coming up with a COMENIUS project together. We do not have a concrete project in mind yet, but we are looking for an English-speaking partner for bilateral-partnership. With the Comenius Project we would like our students and staff with those of the partner School to appreciate each other's culture and heritage. We want to start the project in 2013. If you are interested, please contact us as soon as possible.
