Beyond the Classroom

At Almancil, learning and growth continue beyond lessons, complementing your child’s academic progress and personal development.We help children to pursue their interests and support them to discover their brilliance. They explore the wider world with us and make life-long memories with their classmates.

Outdoor Learning - The Journey

Since our inauguration in 2020, Almancil has been quick to introduce "The Journey" - an enriching, purposeful adventure encouraging children to learn about themselves, each other, the Algarve, and Portugal. 

The Journey” is our comprehensive outdoor learning program, spanning nursery to Year 13, developed by the Globeducate Education Department. Anchored by four pillars - Identity, Adventure, Nature, and Community - it’s integrated across the curriculum. This unique experience builds character, knowledge, skills, competencies, and global perspectives, offering all students a transformative opportunity to connect with nature and develop holistically.

Students on The Journey will discover each of these four pillars:


Identity, self-confidence, and wellbeing


Creativity, challenge and problem-solving


Connection with local, national, and international environments


Teamwork, social interaction, and communication

The Journey was piloted in 2022/23 with Years 3, 4, 5 and 6. Capitalising on the success of our pilot, the following is in place for this academic year:
  • Year 2: Full-day outdoor programme – Outdoor Adventures Loulé - Spring Term
  • Years 3–6: One-day programme – Silves Pedagogical Farm- Autumn Term
  • Years 3–4: Outdoor Full-Day Programme- Summer Term
  • Years 5–6: Outdoor Overnight Programme- Summer Term
  • Years 7- 9: Outdoor 2-day/Overnight Programme- Summer Term
  • Year 9: Introduction to the Bronze International Award/Duke of Edinburgh- Summer Term

VivaHUB - After School

Almancil offers an annual extracurricular programme, VivaHUB, designed to empower our students to discover their passion.
We know that life can get busy and VivaHUB provides that additional care that can assist parents when managing their work-home balance.

VivaHUB is a wonderful opportunity for our children to find new hobbies and interests. The programme will open them up to new experiences, or hone their skills in an area they already have a passion for.
