30-day student trial period

We reserve the right to accept students for a trial period of one month in order for us to assess whether we have resources or staff necessary to fully meet a child’s needs. On completion of the trial period, if the support team is confident that the child’s educational needs can be effectively met we shall put forward a proposed education/action plan.  If however this is not the case (for any reason the team decides) we reserve the right, ruefully, to reject the application.  Any prepaid fee beyond the period attended shall be fully reimbursed along with the deposit.

FAQ

  • Does the curriculum of the Lighthouse differ from other schools?
    Not in terms of the goals. We follow the English National Curriculum like nearly all private English schools in Cyprus. However, we differ in the how we teach. Our aim to keep students excited and motivated. Using more hands-on (experiential) learning and projects whenever possible, we give the lessons more meaning and perspective.
  • Can my child easily transfer to other schools?
    Absolutely. Since we use the same curriculum this is rarely an issue. Our students have successfully relocated to a host of countries across Europe and the States smoothly and proudly.
  • Is there a middle or high school program?
    We are in the process of building new facilities and hope to have all levels of primary and secondary education within 2-3 years. For more details and updates please contact us.
  • Do you give grades?
    Not conventionally. Students receive verbal or letter evaluations indicating their general progress but this is not ‘test-based’ methodology. It is designed as a feedback loop for families to assess progress but not fall into ‘status-traps.’
  • What year groups do you provide?
    We cover pre-reception to Year 8
  • Do you offer a bus service?
    Yes, we offer a daily bus service to and from the Lighthouse from a designated stop in the center of Limassol
  • Do you provide an EAL (English as an Additional Language) lessons if my child's English is insufficient for mainstream lessons?
    Yes, we have two options for EAL lessons – EAL (G) to replace Greek lessons (4x weekly) or EAL (F) a full EAL programme (12-16x weekly) depending on the student’s personal needs.
  • Are you inclusive or not?
    Since each student is viewed as unique we always aim to help find a way to bring out the best in each child. For this reason we attract a wide variety of children with many different abilities and gifts. While we offer a significant degree of optimization or personalization of Individual Education Plans (IEPs) there are some practical limits. What we do not currently offer is a Special Needs Program. If we accept a student it is on the assumption they can do at least 50% of their academic work without an assistant and are generally able to be respectful of others at all times. If a Learning Support Assistant (LSA) (after a student has joined) is required either for academic or behavioral reasons we cannot guarantee continuation of educational service as we do not have the necessary facilities, staff or programs. Students with an LSA should at least be converging with their mainstream peers over time and, ideally, becoming less dependent on the assistant. In the opposite case we will recommend more specialized schools (either in the public or private sphere,) to more effectively meet their needs. Furthermore, we have a capped ratio of 10-15% of students with extra needs and can only accept new applicants if/when a new place opens.
