Nobel Algarve British International School
Welcome to Nobel Algarve British International School – the largest private school in southern Portugal. Nobel Algarve is an exceptional school, offering a unique education in the heart of the Algarve.
We have two outstanding campuses, both within an easy drive of Faro international airport: our flagship school in Lagoa, established in 1972, and our purpose-built campus in Almancil, inaugurated in 2020.
The first international school in the Algarve, Nobel Algarve British International School was founded in 1972 and in 2019 joined Globeducate, one of the world's leading premium bilingual and international schools groups with 55+ schools in 9 countries. In 2021, the school joined Globeducate's British International School's Groups and now works closely with other schools in the cluster in France, Spain, Italy and the UK.
.We set rigorous academic standards and our academic programme is individualised so all students are challenged to be the best they can be.
Both the Lagoa and Almancil campuses offer a contextualised English national curriculum; Lagoa caters for students from aged 3 to 18 years and also has a national section that follows the official Portuguese Ministry of Education programme. Bilingualism is actively promoted and developed.
Almancil currently educates students from aged 3 to 12, but with the second phase of the school now under construction, it will open to students Year 8 and 9 in September 2022.
Our goal is to provide all students with an exceptional international education with a global perspective, rooted in British educational values, in a safe, welcoming and happy international environment.
At Nobel Algarve British International School we believe learning goes beyond the classroom and we offer a rich outdoor learning programme that also promotes environmental awareness and equips our pupils to face challenges confidently building character so they manage failure with tenacity and resilience. We encourage our children to be inquisitive, independent and embrace the diversity of the world around them.
We empower all our students to discover what success means for them and ensure they benefit from the richest experience available.
