From November 1st, 2014 our new priest Father Michael Petrakis took office. Father Michael has replaced father Samuel Kouspogennis Savva, who served the Orthodox community of the Three Hierarchs Leeds, for 12 years. His love for Cyprus and family responsibilities led him to repatriation granting his position to father Michael who is originally from Crete. The two fathers concelebrated for three months until father Samuel returned to his birthplace and Father Michael took over entirely.

A warm welcome to all pupils and their parents to the Greek School.

Unfortunately the school no longer receives books from the Greek or Cypriot government, therefore we must provide our own.
Please find below a link to a folder containing the books your child will require this academic year.
Both will need printing, if you are unable to print please inform the teachers or the School Commitee.
