IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education)

With the IGCSE courses we offer, we prepare our students for and familiarize them with this educational system, before they take the A-Levels. At the same time, we provide them with the opportunity to acquire IGCSE certificates that will optimize their UCAS candidacy in the last year of their A-Levels. We offer the following IGCSE courses: English, Mathematics, Human Biology, Greek, Physics, Economics, Fine Arts and Physical Education.


Interview Preparation

Because a larger number of students submit applications to the most competitive universities with every passing year, the interviews with the candidates is a common means for making the final selection. The GCE Department effectively prepares our students for these interviews with two mock interview sessions each year. They also help the students put together a comprehensive Portfolio.


Authorized Testing Center for Pearson-Edexcel

For more than 25 years, our school has been one of the authorized test centers of the British Pearson tests. Our students have the advantage of taking their exams in familiar surroundings.


The Educational Programme International Advanced Levels - IAL

The GCE / IAL Curriculum we offer, is the same Secondary Studies programme followed by the majority of high schools in England and Wales. The programme acts like a certifying license for those applying to British Higher Education. It lasts one to two years, and is shaped according to the direction one takes with their studies. It has the same specifications, is examined the same way and is acknowledged the same way all GCE courses are recognized in the UK or elsewhere. The GCE / IAL A-Level courses correspond with but do not have parity with the Greek Apolytirion (national diploma). The latter is necessary for anyone interested in taking the Greek university entrance exams. If a student is undecided about whether to study in Greece or abroad, they need to attend the GCE programme in parallel with the courses in the Greek Sr. High School (Lyceum).


Offered Courses

ART & DESIGN – BUSINESS – ECONOMICS – BIOLOGY – CHEMISTRY – PHYSICS – ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE – FRENCH – GERMAN – MATHEMATICS – FURTHER MATHEMATICS – HISTORY –  GREEK – PSYCHOLOGY – PHYSICAL EDUCATION – GOVERNMENT & POLITICS.  Those interested in studying in the Arts, Fine Arts and Design and Architecture are also eligible to take courses in the BTEC programme.



The GCE Department at our School can enroll students or graduates of Sr. High School (Lyceum), whether they attended our School or not. These students can attend their regular morning classes because the GCE programme begins in the afternoon. Registration for each academic year begins on April 1 and ends on September 15, extending to September 30 in the event of vacancies. The positions are filled by order of registration. The maximum number of students per class is strictly observed.
