Welcome to the website of Byron College - The British International School in Athens.
Byron College was founded in 1986 to provide a high-quality British-style education for the international and Greek community in Athens. We are now a lively and dynamic community with more than 400 pupils, ranging from Nursery to Sixth Form (3-18 years) and representing more than 55 nationalities.
We aim to discover the talents inherent in every child, to inspire creativity and to encourage individuality. Our pupils are happy, safe and confident.
Our School follows an enhanced National Curriculum for England and Wales, which includes Debate, Philosophy for Children (P4C), Greek Language and Culture and the innovative Big History Project. We provide a variety of enrichment activities such as Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), Forensics, Drumming, Martial Arts and Creative Writing to help our pupils develop intellectual curiosity and independent thinking skills.
Highly-skilled and experienced teachers create exciting, challenging and fun lessons. We have high expectations for our pupils and are deeply committed to helping them attain excellence in all areas, including academia, sport, drama and music. Our pupils consistently achieve well above the British and international standards in public examinations and many go on to study at world-class universities such as Cambridge, Imperial, MIT, Oxford and Warwick.
At Byron College, we focus on developing international mindedness, social awareness and responsible citizenship. We guide our pupils into becoming creative thinkers, problem solvers and entrepreneurs who are equipped to communicate, cooperate and negotiate in the diverse and global world of the future.
We look forward to welcoming you and your family to the Byron College community.
