The Greek Orthodox Community of St Barnabas was established in 1965. First services took place in the hall of St Michael of the Anglican Church, Wood Green and later in St Mark’s, the Anglican Church in Gladstone Avenue, Wood Green. Shortly afterwards St Barnabas Church was rented from the Group of Catholic Apostolic churches.
The Greek Cathedral of St Mary, Trinity Road, Wood Green was purchased from the Methodist Church in the year 1970. A few years later the premises of St Barnabas were also purchased.
St. Barnabas Greek School was also established in the year 1965. This community was considered the largest community of our Archdiocese. The School started with a small number of children and at one stage reached 1,200 pupils. It now has in excess of three hundred students.
Our school operates every Saturday in two sessions, 9.30 – 1.00 pm and 2.30 – 6.00 pm.
The Secondary School of the Greek Embassy was accommodated in our school premises during the years 1998-2001. They since returned to our premises in September 2012.
St. Barnabas Greek School was founded with one purpose - to build a space for all students to grow, learn and create with each passing day. Through a unique teaching approach and a truly passionate staff, we help students develop academically and personally to the highest level.
