History of TLC Private School

The History of TLC Private School

TLC Private School is about to start its tenth year as one of the premier private schools on the island of Cyprus with an extraordinary history.

The school was launched in September 2010 with 17 students, 3 teachers and a classroom assistant. The school has gone from strength to strength and has reached a student body of 290 young people from the ages of 3 to 18 and with a committed staff of over fifty experienced teachers who all have the future of the students at heart.

Having begun life in upper Peyia, the school moved to larger premises at Agios Georgios and, after an extensive programme of improvements, is now able to offer a broad education with excellent facilities to students from the local and expatriate communities.

In 2019 the Directors were successful in acquiring the Baccarat Estate on Agios Georgios road, now know as The Parkland Estate, which includes a stately mansion and its four adjacent properties set in large grounds with lots of natural grass and shade – entirely befitting of a high quality private school.

This exciting development will enable the school to accommodate its rapidly increasing student roll which is attributable to the reputation the school has gained for the high quality of education that it offers. The expansion of the school’s accommodation will include significant improvements in specialist facilities, including the establishment of faculties for languages, sciences and mathematics, sport, technology and the arts.

The school began with a set of core values, intrinsic to what it saw as being essential for the academic and social development of its students. Despite the growth in the school, it has retained its caring, family feel whilst providing rigour and challenge within the curriculum, supported by the dedicated teachers.

Recognising that school isn’t just about academia, TLC Private School has sought over the years to provide its students with the means to develop life skills such as teamwork and cooperation, resilience and adaptability through sport, art and community work.

As the school welcomes back its students year on year, it continues to look to the future and how it can further its mission to provide the best all-round education for its students, ably supported by the teachers, parents and the community.

The school’s popularity means that places are always at a premium and with many classes oversubscribed, parents need to be aware that securing your child’s school place early is essential.
