The Greek School of Potters Bar has move to a new state of the art facility at Dame Alice Owen’s School - leaving the building it has called home for more than 35 years. 

Founded in 1979, the school has been serving the Greek and Cypriot community in the area from its current location at Oakmere Primary School since 1985. 

Throughout that time, the Greek School has given thousands of children the opportunity to learn the Greek language, culture and traditions, enrolling children of all ages. 

Chairman Marios Artemi is sad to leave Oakmere, but believes the facilities at Dame Alice Owen’s will see the school and its children go from strength to strength.
