About Us

History & Ethos

We are an independent Greek School for children from four years onwards, serving the Greek and Greek Cypriot communities in the wider Yorkshire area. The school is part of The Three Hierarchs Greek Orthodox Community of Leeds and Surrounding Districts and has a Christian Orthodox ethos.

Since its foundation in 1962 the school has grown steadily and currently has over 110 registered pupils from diverse backgrounds. To accommodate the needs of its growing pupil base, the Greek Orthodox Community purchased and converted the current school building (31 Avenue Crescent), which provides modern and child-friendly learning facilities. The whole school transitioned to the newly refurbished building in September 2019.
