It is my pleasure to welcome you to Nobel Algarve British International School.

We are incredibly proud of our school and I hope that our website gives you some indication of the reasons why.

As the largest private school in southern Portugal, at Nobel Algarve British International School we prepare our pupils to shape tomorrow through excellence in a British or Portuguese education, with a global perspective.

Our educational philosophy is underpinned by four pillars.


The Nobel Algarve vision and values are to ENRICH and CHALLENGE our students so they each ACHIEVE success in their own way and build the confidence to help SHAPE the future.


  • Our international students, from pre-school through secondary, benefit from a broad and balanced English or Portuguese Curriculum whilst developing a global mindset. ​
  • Our school is enriched by difference; our students discover and develop their own talents and appreciate the perspectives and gifts of others. ​
  • Our students benefit from a dedicated focus on the English language as well as Portuguese language and culture. Bilingualism is actively promoted and developed. ​
  • As part of Globeducate, our students gain invaluable opportunities for international cooperation and collaboration.


  • We set rigorous academic standards so our pupils are furnished with choices when they leave Nobel Algarve.​
  • Our academic programme is individualised so all pupils are challenged to be the best they can be.​
  • Our pupils are courageous learners.​

We have two beautiful campus. Our Lagoa campus is just minutes from the beach, easily accessible to many nearby towns by bus and just 40 minutes from the international airport in Faro. Our Almancil campus is situated on an extensive plot of land in Almancil, close to Vale de Lobo and Quinta do Lago.

I believe that Nobel Algarve offers your child an exceptional education where they are enriched and challenged so they can each achieve success in their own way and help shape the future.

My staff and I warmly invite you visit our Lagoa or Almancil campus to find out more about our amazing school and what it has to offer.
