IMS ranks first in Cyprus in numbers of students studying at leading universities such as Cambridge, Oxford, Imperial, UCL, LSE, Warwick, Bath, St Andrews and more. We are confident that these numbers will grow further with the development of IMS Private School. Key factors for this achievement are:

  • the solid academic background of applicants
  • their extensive preparation for additional university entrance tests
  • training for the interviews required for certain subjects and by some universities
  • strong support to students with their UCAS application.

IMS Private School is a UCAS School and as such provides all the services offered by UCAS for university applications, as well as extremely helpful guidance and advising to students during the course of their application. Our experienced careers adviser is constantly supporting our students in their choices for university studies and offers essential assistance in producing the best possible application package.

School Facilities

The school premises have been designed to satisfy the contemporary needs of a school and at the same time add a modern architectural note to the area where the school is situated. Built in the centre of the city, IMS is equipped with all that is needed to address the future of education.

The building is centrally air conditioned with electric external blinds, so that students and teachers spend their time at IMS in a comfortable environment, either in class or in the common areas.

All classrooms are equipped with interactive touch-screen boards with computer and internet connection, maximizing productivity during the lesson.

A science laboratory is fully equipped to satisfy the requirements of the practical element of GCSE and GCE examinations and give an added interest to the taught courses. The lab space includes specially designed laboratory working benches suitable for the simultaneous

conduct of fourteen (14) independent experiments (for 14 students or groups of students). Each working space is equipped with an independent LPG supply line, a tap with sink and adequate electricity sockets. The laboratory is fully equipped with all the necessary scientific devices, instruments and chemicals needed for basic and advanced experiments in Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Moreover, the lab space includes a storage room and is equipped with smoke and gas detectors, an interactive board, raised floor (according to international standards) and air conditioning.

A computer lab with latest generation hardware is indispensable for the computing courses but also useful for other subjects that require computer technology.  It is equipped with 16 desktop computers for students and another one for the teacher, connected to an interactive board. Latest software is installed on each of them enabling the user to have access to unlimited sources.

The fourth floor wholly hosts the theatre hall which is where lectures, presentations and exams take place. Featuring a projection system with connection to computer and writing tablet as well as a central sound system, it can satisfy the most demanding audience.

The ground floor hosts a friendly reception area, staff offices and a conference room as well as a cafeteria for students and teachers with indoor and outdoor sitting space.

Particular emphasis has been given in designing the building so that it comprises more than adequate washrooms and toilets, cleanliness being one of our main concerns.

Timetable and Extracurricular Activities

TIMETABLE

Freshness in all of our choices has also influenced our timetable arrangements. We have approached the timetable according to the needs of our senior student body. Experience from our afternoon curriculum has shown that 40-minute periods are not as productive as one hour sessions. Optimum teaching productivity and student concentration works best in the daily schedule outlined as follows:

Period Time
1 09:00 - 10:00
2 10:00 - 11:00
Break 11:00 - 11:30
3 11:30 - 12:30
4 12:30 - 13:30
5 13:30 - 14:30
