St. Peter's International School was founded in 1993 with a mission to provide the highest academic excellence in any circumstance for children aged 6 months to 18 years old, offering an exclusive curriculum, and consistently being in the top 10 in the national academic rankings, while also having outstanding results in the international curriculum. As an authorised IB World School in Portugal, St. Peter’s International School offers the IB Diploma Programme.
St. Peter's International School offers a complete and exclusive curriculum with a humanistic approach, strong sports and artistic programmes in a diverse environment. First-class extracurricular activities are available on-site for all ages, allowing students to pursue their interests, benefitting from an active and significant integration into a rapidly changing and increasingly globalised society.
At our school we promote the spirit of sharing and union, including the immersion of new nationalities. The English language acquires particular importance in our educational context, especially from Grade 7 onward as we offer an international curriculum. Our students also have the opportunity to study other languages, like Spanish, German, Mandarin and Latin, giving students a well-rounded, 360º education which will undoubtedly enrich their future.
With state-of-the-art facilities, located in a calm area close to Portugal’s capital, Lisbon, students gain a vital learning experience, encouraged to become more proactive and responsible, having access to diverse art forms, a wide range of sports activities with an exclusive 2400m2 campus, including 3 football pitches, 1 rugby field and 2 tennis courts as well as specialised areas, with science labs, art rooms, IT labs and a fully equipped multimedia resource centre.
Finally, as part of the Inspired Education Group, we offer unlimited opportunities to our students, establishing St. Peter's International School as a globally recognised international school, ensuring that all students reach their personal and academic goals for their future, helping to nurture individuals who will contribute positively to the world they live in. And as we want to provide excellence in teaching at any level, St. Peter's International School is proud to announce a new project for September 2021: we will be offering Boarding, including a new Boarding House to welcome students from all over the world.
