Nobel International School Porches

Most likely the oldest and biggest International School in Porches. Both our boys completed their I.G.C.S.E. there.

Nobel International School Algarve

As the largest private boarding and day school in southern Portugal, at Nobel International School Algarve Lagoa and Almancil we provide our students with an educational experience that challenges their minds, inspires their creativity and instils a desire for discovery that will last a lifetime. In fact, echoing Portugal’s celebrated history of exploration, the theme of “Discovery” guides every aspect of academic inquiry and campus life at Nobel Algarve.

Discover our exceptional academic programmes. Our International Sections at Lagoa and Almancil offer a modified British national curriculum, while our National Section at Lagoa follows the official Portuguese Ministry of Education programmes. Both sections at the Nobel Lagoa campus enrol students from Pre-School through Secondary, and boarding is available to Secondary students from the age of 12.

Discover our beautiful campus. Nobel Algarve offers state-of-the-art classrooms, extensive well-equipped athletic facilities, comfortable boarding accommodation and specialised venues for scientific exploration, language study, music practice and pursuit of the visual and performing arts.

Discover southern Portugal. Our Lagoa campus is just minutes from the beach, easily accessible to many nearby towns by bus and just 40 minutes from the international airport in Faro. Students have the opportunity to discover the history and natural beauty of the Algarve on their own and through class-sponsored excursions and activities. Our Almancil campus is situated on an extensive plot of land opposite the Go-Karting track in Almancil, close to Vale de Lobo and Quinta do Lago..

Discover new cultures and languages. Our multi-national community celebrates the diversity of cultural and language traditions contributed by students, faculty and staff. We embrace and foster multi-lingualism through advanced language learning.

Discover the world. Nobel Algarve offers students exceptional opportunities to collaborate with students at other schools around the globe. Exchange programmes enable students to widen their horizons and we are committed to establishing links with the global community.

We believe Nobel Algarve offers your child an education that will prepare him or her for a lifetime of success, achievement and personal satisfaction. We invite you to tour our campus at Lagoa or Almancil, to meet our staff and to discover what makes Nobel International School Algarve Lagoa and Almancil truly unique.
