St. Peter's International school is a private school which celebrated its 30th Anniversary in 2023. It provides a competitive, high-quality education from nursery to secondary school (4 months to 18 years old), ensuring students have access to the best opportunities and support to achieve their full academic and personal potential. St. Peter's mission is to build self-reliant, critical and creative students. As an authorised IB World School in Portugal, we offer the IB Diploma Programme in Grades 11 and 12.

St. Peter's International School provides a unique education model with a humanistic approach, adapted to each age group, where languages, sports, arts and technology are key elements in students' daily lives. From Kindergarten to Junior School, we offer a personalised bilingual curriculum, and the option of the national Portuguese or the International curriculum (Cambridge Primary, Lower Secondary, IGCSE and the IB Diploma Programme). Academic excellence is guaranteed in both curricula: St. Peter's is a well-established school with proven outstanding academic results in both the national and the international exams, ensuring access to top tier universities in Portugal and abroad.

Located only 30 minutes from Lisbon city centre, St. Peter's extensive 37,000 m2 campus has outstanding facilities for academics, arts and sports, including 3 football fields, 1 rugby pitch and 2 tennis courts, as well as specialised areas, with science and IT labs, art rooms, and a fully equipped multimedia resource centre.

In addition, St. Peter's is home to the first boarding school in the area, an extension of our commitment to excellence, where students can develop life skills while nurturing lifelong friendships. Now, families living abroad can guarantee their children have access to an international, individualised education in a safe environment and location. Being an on-campus boarding residence, surrounded by the mountains and the sea, students can benefit from a wide range of extracurricular and enrichment activities both during the week and at weekends.

Finally, as an Inspired Education Group school, St. Peter's offers a range of opportunities to students, who have access to the world's best practices in education, outstanding arts and sports programmes, state of the art facilities, and unique exchange Programmes.
