St. Peter's International school is a private school with over 27 years of experience. It provides a competitive, high-quality education from nursery to secondary school (from 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. From Kindergarten to Junior School, we offer a personalised bilingual curriculum, and the option of the national Portuguese or the International curriculum (Cambridge Lower Secondary, IGCSE and IB Diploma Programme) from Grade 7 onwards. 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.
First-class extracurricular activities are available on-site for all ages, allowing students to pursue their interests. St. Peter's prepares students for academic, personal and professional success in an unpredictable future, developing vital soft skills which will help them overcome challenges and be successful in any career path they choose.
Located only 30 minutes from Lisbon's city centre, St. Peter's extensive 37,000 sqm 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: students have access to our top education and can develop life skills while nurturing life-long 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 an enriching range of extracurricular activities both during the week and the weekends.
Finally, as an Inspired Education Group school, St. Peter's offers unlimited opportunities to students, who have access to world's best practices in education, outstanding arts and sports programmes, state of the art facilities, and unique Exchange Programmes.
