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. 

Students become self-reliant, solve problems and push themselves outside their comfort zones during The Journey. They courageously learn with, through, and from nature, as they develop skills in collaboration, critical thinking, communication, and creativity.

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

Extracurricular activities

Almancil offers a full range of extracurricular activities enabling students to pursue their own interests and explore new areas of inquiry.

Our packed programme includes sports, STEAM, arts clubs, games, dance, languages, and more. Activities are age-appropriate, and there is something for everyone. The programme is regularly reviewed, and new activities are introduced, often by the students.
