Greek School – About Us
Every successful individual knows that his or her achievement depends on a community of persons working together.
The Brighton Greek School of the Holy Trinity is an independent, non-profit making organisation registered as a charity trust (registration number 1168710). Our main purpose is to promote and teach the Modern Greek language, culture and traditions to children and adults of all national backgrounds who live in Brighton and the surrounding area.
We are a Greek Orthodox Christian school in which the Christian faith contributes significantly to the spiritual, moral and cultural life of the school. Lessons have been established since 1964 to date and we are proud that the school has been able to grow in numbers and to accommodate pupils from all ages and abilities.
The school aims to encourage a love of Greece and Cyprus, an understanding of their history and recognition and pride in their legacy. In particular, the Brighton Greek School strives to show younger generations the influence that this rich cultural source has exerted and continues to exert on both individuals and society as a whole.
The Brighton Greek School of the Holy Trinity works under the auspices of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Thyateira and Great Britain and the Cyprus Educational Mission in the UK. We follow the Cyprus Educational Mission Curriculum for the Greek Supplementary Schools in the UK.
The School offers six designated small classrooms for up to 13 pupils within the main Church building and adjoining hall. Textbooks and reading materials are available for children of all ages. In addition, there is audiovisual equipment, Greek videos, DVDs, games and music, which the pupils can learn from and enjoy. The school also has computers in every classroom. The Church itself is used for the schools cultural and religious lessons, rehearsals and performances and other general gatherings.
Teachers and School Committee
Brighton Greek school teachers are native Greek speakers, passionate about keeping the Greek language alive. They work together with the headteacher as well as with the school committee for achieving the best academic results.
The school committee is formed of parents of our students. They support the teachers and they are responsible for organising events and raising funds for our school.
