I am delighted to welcome you to our website and to the King Richard School. King Richard School is part of a federation with St John’s school of two small but vibrant 11-18 state secondary schools serving the military community in British Forces Cyprus (BFC).
We have wonderful facilities in excellent school buildings which overlook the Mediterranean sea in Dhekelia (Eastern Sovereign Base Area)
With such excellent learning conditions we expect and achieve excellent results. Our GCSE results, levels of progress from KS2 and Progress 8 scores are all significantly above the national average and we are hugely proud of our A Level students who also make excellent progress.
We are very pleased that King Richard School has been rated by Ofsted/HMI as ‘outstanding’ in 2017, which followed an ‘Outstanding’ judgement in 2013. This is testament to the dedication of our UK trained teachers and locally employed support team, personalised approach, excellent facilities and class sizes that are very small by UK standards.
As a Ministry of Defence School we are used to high levels of student mobility and make it our aim to personalise our curriculum as far as possible to ensure success for all. In addition to children from Service families, we also have a small number of fee paying students at each school who join us from the local Cypriot and ex-pat communities. Whether you are entitled to a free place or wish to join us as a fee paying student, details can be found here about the application process.
Our aim is to ensure that students are happy and that learning is outstanding in every lesson, every day and underpinned with a strong belief in our core values . All staff and students embrace our values of Excellence, Learning and Leadership and we know that it is these qualities that will help them be resilient, successful, aspirant and responsible in their lives whilst living in Cyprus and beyond. Our extra-curricular programme is integral to the offer that we make to our students. This includes CMS Band , Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, Model United Nations and a huge range of sports such as paddle boarding, football and swimming.
MOD Schools are part of the Department for Children and Young People (DCYP) in the UK Ministry of Defence. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to learn more or view our prospectus.
