Welcome to Almancil campus

I am delighted to be taking on the role of Head of School at Nobel Algarve British International School, Almancil.

Having spent nearly 30 years working in International Schools in Copenhagen, Spain, the US and the Caribbean, I have just completed 12 years on the beautiful island of Mauritius. I have now come full circle and return to Portugal, a place where I spent five years back in the 1970s, and it feels like I am coming home. 

I join Nobel Algarve British International School, Almancil at a very exciting time. A new school, with incredible facilities, and room for growth, I am looking forward to being part of an incredible team of educators who share the same vision. The school is fortunate to have a staff that is committed to providing the best education, and one that fosters a love of learning. The make-up of the staff is truly international, and we come with experience and more importantly, a desire to grow, individually and collectively.  

Our next academic year will see our current Year 11 cohort completing their IGCSE examinations, and in September 2025, the same group will be the pioneers of Nobel’s first International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP). We are a candidate school for the Diploma Programme, pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy; a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education, that we believe is important for our students.

While the school follows a rigorous academic programme, at Nobel, we aim to nurture young minds to be inquisitive, caring and reflective individuals who want to make a positive impact in the ever-changing world we live in, and, in line with the vision of Globeducate, we seek to lay the foundations for a better future”. The foundation are the students we work with. 

Clear collaboration and communication are essential for growth, and I look forward to nurturing a culture of community, while developing a common understanding and appreciation of the shared journey that we are all on. Our goal is to establish Nobel as one of the top schools in the region, the country, and internationally. We welcome you to be part of that journey, so please come in and visit the future.
