It is a pleasure to welcome you to the website of St. Lawrence College, the British school in Greece. I am confident that the information and the imagery in these pages will give you a powerful indication of the warmth and happiness and above all the learning that takes place across the entire community of this wonderful school.

St. Lawrence College offers a British education to children ages 3-18, in a modern purpose-built campus set in more than 20 acres of glorious countryside in southern Athens. The school’s stunning location provides the ideal setting for unpressurised learning. It is served by an excellent communications network that provides easy access to pupils based across the entire Athens-Piraeus conurbation. In this peaceful rural setting, complete with first-class resources and facilities, children can develop their study skills and achieve lasting and meaningful learning.

They become citizens of the world, fully equipped to recognise and respect diversity...

The education our pupils receive is based upon the English National Curriculum and British educational values throughout, from pre-school through junior school (Key Stage 1 & 2) and senior school (Key Stages 3-5), with IGCSEs being taken at the end of Year 11 and AS & A-Levels in Years 12 and 13. The vast majority of our pupils progress to UK universities, while others choose to embark on their higher education experience in the US or elsewhere in the world.

Under the guidance of an outstanding body of teachers, our pupils succeed in reaching far more than their academic potential alone. They become citizens of the world, fully equipped to recognise and respect diversity, either in their immediate society or within the global environment; to appreciate and utilise the opportunities provided for them, and to understand the value of being an active and considerate member of their community. They forge bonds of friendship within an inclusive environment of pupils from more than fifty nationality backgrounds.

A website can only go so far. The best way to fully appreciate the atmosphere of happy and safe development that children live and breathe at our school is to experience it for yourself. Therefore, should you wish to visit St. Lawrence College and observe first-hand the quality of learning that happens in our stunning educational environment, it would be our pleasure to welcome you at our premises and show you face-to-face just what makes St. Lawrence College special.
