Why GAU Group of Schools?

GAU Group of Schools is an independent group of schools offering education to students between the ages of 1.5 and 18. We aim to provide a high quality, internationally based education to students of different nationalities. We welcome children and young people from all corners of the globe – encouraging cultural connections both in and outside our classrooms.


GAU Group of Schools follows a British-based curriculum as well as national (MEB), with students preparing for the Cambridge Young Learners exams (Starters, Movers and Flyers) and DELF in our primary schools. Our colleges offer KET, PET, IELTS, IGCSE as well as AS/A Level syllabuses. Our dedicated team of staff is fully qualified and holds degrees and international teaching credentials. We provide a caring and supportive environment for our children to thrive and for our parents to feel valued as part of our school community.


Our Schools are located both in Girne (Kyrenia), at the base of the Beşparmak (Five Finger) Mountains, overlooking the Mediterranean and also in the historical capital, Lefkoşa (Nicosia). The facilities include fully functional multimedia, internet- connected computer labs, science labs, music hall, art studio, dance studios, basketball and tennis courts, indoor-outdoor sports halls and swimming pools in addition to the classrooms.


The programs offered by our schools include a variety of non-curricular activities for all pupils to ensure that the education offers creative, artistic and expressive areas to complement the academic areas. Participation in the local and regional tournaments such as basketball, track and field, football, swimming, fencing as well as art, mathematics, science and language continue throughout the year.
