About Us

Manor Hill Independent Greek School has a long history. Its heritage goes back to September 1980 stemmed by the desire of the Greek Community in the London Borough of Barnet to offer its children the opportunity to learn their mother tongue and preserve their Greek national traditions and inheritance, independently of other influences.

The independence of the School is enshrined in its constitution, which has as its main objective, the active support of the parents and the respective main and mother’s committees. Both committees work arduously & voluntarily in the background to promote and maintain the school’s profile and raise the necessary funds for its upkeep by way of its varied social events such as the Annual Greek Dinner and Dance Ball; The Barbecue Sports Day; The Mothers Day Bazaar; The Coffee Mornings and of course the ever popular and mouth-watering Souvlakia Days run by its home grown consortium Kebab Plc.

The School, however, never loses sight of its aim which is to ensure that the School’s high standard of education is maintained and to this end, the Headmaster in conjunction with the Governing Committee recruits suitably qualified teachers of high calibre.

Manor Hill Greek School has adopted the official Analytical Timetable of the Ministry of Education of Cyprus especially adapted for Greek Community Schools. Its links with Greece and Cyprus are strong with the school often featuring in Greek Media events. 

The School currently has over 400 students, 42 Teachers & 7 teachers assistants. 42 classes are held twice a week, on Wednesday from 6:00 p.m. to 8.00 p.m. and on Saturday from 09:50 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Emphasis is given to the teaching of the Greek language and the pupils are actively encouraged to speak Greek. The majority of our students not only pass GCSE and A’ Level examinations in Modern Greek but do so with consistently high passes.

Apart from the Greek language, the School curriculum includes religious studies, history, geography of Greece and Cyprus, music and dance – thus preserving our Greek origins and culture.

The School also provides classes in Modern Greek for adults. 

Manor Hill Greek School aims at establishing itself not only as an Educational Institute of excellent academic performance but also as a centre where families make new friends and acquaintances. Parents, teachers and friends stand united and work for a common purpose: 

To preserve, promote and advance the School’s aims and objectives.
