We look forward to welcoming you to our school!
At the Brighton Greek School of the Holy Trinity, we teach the Modern Greek language, knowledge and understanding of the Greek Culture, traditional dance and music. The School caters primarily for children aged 4-16. All children’s classes are structured taking both the age and the language level of the pupils into account. Most pupils have some Greek or Greek Cypriot links. However, anyone who is keen to learn or improve their knowledge of the Greek language is welcome to attend.
Our weekly schedule allows the students to practice the Modern Greek language and to learn about the Greek and Cypriot culture through lessons on history, traditional dance, music and religion. We follow the Curriculum for the Supplementary Schools in the UK, as provided by the Cyprus Educational Mission UK. The teachers attend regular workshops and seminars on teaching the Greek language as a second/foreign language.
Our school has a Christian Orthodox ethos and the priest of our community, Father Germanos, is teaching children short sessions on the Bible, every Saturday morning. We do, however, accept students from other religious backgrounds/no religious backgrounds. On occasion, the students are offered Holy Communion during the church service. It is the parents’ decision whether the children will take part in the religious lessons and the Holy Communion.
We accept children in the nursery class as long as they turn 5 years old during the academic year. In this class children practice the Greek language through songs, games, stories and role playing.
Modern Greek for years 1 – 6
Lessons for years 1- 6 are structured to develop the students’ Greek language listening, speaking, reading and writing. The curriculum is enriched with lessons on the history and culture of Cyprus and Greece, covering religion, mythology, national celebrations, traditional dancing and music.
