St. John's School is a secondary school located within the British military complex Episkopi Cantonment in southern Cyprus and is run by the Service Children's Education. It is one of two schools serving the military families and employees of the Western Sovereign Base Area (WSBA). Younger children attend Episkopi Primary School.

It is a sister school of King Richard School, the main secondary school at the Dhekelia Garrison, Eastern Sovereign Base Area (ESBA).

History[edit]

St. John's School was established in 1960, just after Cyprus gained independence from the British. The school celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2010.[1] It was founded to exclusively educate children within the military community but has since opened its doors to a small number of local English-speaking expatriate children.

Academics and School Activities[edit]

Like all SCE schools, St. John's follows the National Curriculum and is regulated by Ofsted.[2] In the 2007 inspection it was rated good and satisfactory in all aspects.

St. John's is a coordinator school of the Cyprus Music Service which runs music programmes and lessons for SCE schools in Cyprus.[3]
