ABOUT THE HELLENIC SCHOOL OF MANCHESTER
Head Teacher’s Welcome
Dear parents and students,
I am very happy to welcome you to our website!
Here at the Hellenic School of Manchester we strongly believe that our school provides an inspirational and constructive environment for the children to discover and learn about the Greek language, Greek and Cypriot culture, customs and practices.
The spiritual, moral, emotional and social well-being of every child is the top priority for us. Our wonderful and experienced staff is best placed to assist towards this as well as ensuring that all children progress and develop both academically and personally.
As the school’s Head Teacher, I have set high standards for all teachers and children and I am certain that with effective collaboration between all parties involved -teachers, parents, children- we can achieve all of our targets for this academic year.
I hope you all enjoy your time in our school. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries, concerns or there is anything I can do to help and support you with your child’s learning and school life.
It is a primary objective of our school that every member of the school community feels valued and respected, and that each person is treated fairly. In everything we do, we work to ensure that our children, staff and families feel happy, safe and secure. Behaviour, performance and attendance that reflect these values are rewarded and celebrated at school. Negative behaviour that is counter to our values is not tolerated.
The children are taught to be proud and thankful to be able to benefit from the values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and respect for people of different faiths and beliefs.
We want to ensure pupils embrace a learning culture which allows them to enjoy their supplementary education, love the challenge of learning, thrive in lessons and be resilient to failure. This allows them to make progress in the Greek language and extend their skills for the next steps in their education.
At the heart of our supplementary school is our vision for our children, their families and our broader community.
This vision is grounded on our belief that the purpose of supplementary education is to allow children to learn and grow in a safe, happy and stimulating environment.
We believe in setting our children ambitious targets and supporting every one of them to embrace the Greek language and culture, through the provision of support tailored to their individual needs. We work hard to ensure that children enjoy their learning – and that they are engaged both in the classroom and beyond, through participation in the large number of co-curricular activities we have on offer.
