Greek Language School

The Greek School of the Holy Trinity was founded by Greek Parish members over 30 years ago. It operates under the auspices of the Greek Orthodox Community of the Holy Trinity and is governed by its own School Committee. Since 2010, the Cyprus Educational Mission (KEA) has been supporting the school by funding some teaching hours. Classes are held in the House of St Gregory and St Macrina and the House of St Theosevia on Canterbury Road, adjacent to the Orthodox Church in North Oxford. The School aims to promote Greek language and culture primarily for children’s education. Currently, we do not offer adult classes.

Pupils are grouped according to age and level and the classes are kept small to ensure optimal learning. All tutors are native speakers, qualified and with experience in teaching. Children are encouraged to participate actively in lessons. Emphasis is placed on oral communication in the younger groups through fun and varied activities. All four language skills are taught and practised: reading, writing, listening and speaking. Short homework pieces are set each week for most groups. Greek cultural elements are incorporated to enhance learning, through literature, history, drama, music and visits to museums/exhibitions according to the age group and special interests of the tutors. The curriculum includes learning about feasts, celebrations and important dates in the Greek calendar.
Due to the high demand in our younger groups, please book early to avoid disappointment.
