Greek School of Potters Bar
Greek Language Educational Establishment of Hertfordshire
A very warm welcome to the Greek School of Potters Bar.
Our aim is to provide a Greek School with a safe, happy and relaxed atmosphere for our children to come together to learn to speak, read and write Greek, to socialise and be proud of their Greek culture and religion.
Our classes begin at Nursery level for 4-5 year olds and go up to GCSE and A Level. In the Nursery and Reception classes children learn Greek songs, poems, stories and conversation as well as basic vocabulary and language structures. Children in Years 1-6 are introduced to formal reading and writing of the Greek language and all children have Greek dancing and music lessons each week. The children also learn about their homeland with elements of history, religion, geography and Greek culture. Children aged 13-14 progress to taking their GCSE in Greek Language and we are very proud of our success rate. Some children choose to further their studies at AS or A' Level which include Greek language and literature.
I firmly believe that the support of parents and their involvement in our school programme and events, as well as encouraging children to respect their work, plays a significant role in supporting children at our school throughout their years with us.
To have been given the opportunity to lead this magnificent school is a great honour for me and it is my privilege to be working alongside a team of talented teachers and support staff and a committee of dedicated and hard working volunteer parents. It is impossible to convey the great atmosphere of our school within a website. I would encourage you to visit us here so that we can show you in person all that it means to be part of the Greek School of Potters Bar ‘family’.
I am always happy to meet with new and existing parents to discuss any questions they have regarding their child or the school. New and existing families are always received with a warm welcome by everyone at the school and I look forward to welcoming you personally.
