About Us

We are a progressive school, unique to education in Cyprus, for children aged 5 to 15 and our programme will soon include a high school.

We enrich the British National Curriculum and the Finnish Education Philosophy with  successful educational ideas from all over the world.

Our child-centred teaching incorporates the non-academic skills such as confidence building and social development that our children will also need in their lives.

We promote a holistic approach to education and implement it in project-based, experiential learning so that knowledge is whole, enmeshed in practice, understood and includes learning to know oneself and others.

We foster a passion for learning and help children build personalities that are self-aware, balanced, creative, eager to take initiative and cultivate self-discipline and respect.

Our Vision

An ideal school

Beg, borrow or steal like an artist, but find a way for education to evolve! If evolution, in it’s infinite wisdom, teaches anything, it is…never be satisfied; evolve or perish.

An ideal school should be all things to all people. Hence everyone should be able to shape the kind and quality of educational experience they want. Personalizing educational plans, creating meaningful and relevant curricula and embracing innovative/original ideas in an organic, evolving educational system combine to generate an environment that inspires its members as much as it is open to being inspired.

While we may not always reach our goals in the Lighthouse we believe that failure is nothing more than a dress rehearsal for success.

Our Mission

Prepare our students in as many ways possible for an unpredictable future.
Optimize education so it suits each child as individually possible (student-centred).
Create a learning experience that is fascinating, inspiring, entertaining and yet useful.
Facilitate each child's personal and social development so s/he is confident, considerate, constructively critical, a creative thinker and empowered doer.

Our Strategy

Ability based
(instead of age-based) educational plans so children learn in relation to where they are (not where they are 'supposed' to be).
Small classes.
Maximum 12 students per class. This is to ensure that each student receives the attention and learning support they need. Every child is unique and moves at their own speed. We offer differentiation in the classroom for all levels of ability.
Project-based and hands-on experiential learning.
We learn by doing, not always by just listening or watching. The Lighthouse strives to create a learning experience that is fascinating, inspiring, entertaining and yet useful.
Values
Learn the reasons for values such as respect, honesty, sharing and responsibility especially via moments of conflict or frustration.
Personal and social development.
We want to help raise confident, considerate, constructively critical young people into society. We need more creative thinkers and empowered doers for the future.
The Lighthouse philosophy is that parents and students should be able to shape the content and quality of a child’s educational experience. A community approach. Personalizing educational plans, creating meaningful and relevant curricula and embracing innovative/original ideas in an organic, evolving educational system that inspires students passions and strengths.
Our mission is to prepare our students in as many ways possible for an unpredictable future.
