The School Environment
Almancil was inaugurated in 2020 and is Portugal’s only purpose-built school. Our state-of-the-art campus sits within lush, green surroundings in the heart of the Algarve’s prestigious ‘Golden Triangle’, with easy access to Faro Airport.
Features at Almancil
The campus has been designed to incorporate architectural elements sympathetic to a mindfulness curriculum, with a Pause Pod, sensory gardens, and a Feng Shui-inspired central quad.
A dedicated Astroturf, multi-media centre, multi-purpose hall, library, and dedicated playground for Pre-school will create a dynamic and forward-thinking 21st-Century learning environment. Classrooms are wifi-linked with smart boards.

Almancil campus is growing.
We are excited to expand during Nobel Algarve’s 50th anniversary year. We are a long-established and popular international school in the area, with a rich history and long-held traditions. The investment in our campus means we will offer full Secondary provision, marking a significant point in our success story.
We have completed the phase three (c. 4,000 sqm) of campus development, allowing us to extend our Middle School offer into full Secondary provision, with further new classrooms, labs, art rooms, parking, and sports fields, among many other new facilities.
