IPS Cascais, is a school that prides itself on the warmth of its welcome to children and parents from around the world. It is a relatively small school of more than 350 children, but almost 40 different nationalities make up the close-knit community.

This multinational community helps to create a learning environment that fosters a global understanding; appreciating cultures, as well as each other. The school is proud of the high academic standards attained by the children and encourages them to achieve their best in all aspects of the curriculum.

IPS Cascais has been teaching the National Curriculum of England for 40 years, starting all the way back in 1982. In 2010, IPS Cascais moved into its sustainable, purpose-built facilities that are ideal for Primary Education. This colourful site is equipped with playing fields, a library with over 22,500 books, and plenty of accessible areas to facilitate outdoor learning. In 2023, IPS Cascais is now housed in modern, purpose-built facilities and proudly opened its Secondary school in September 2022. Year 7 and 8 will be hosted on the primary site until the new campus for Secondary opens in September 2024. IPS will eventually grow to have all year groups (FS1 to Year 13) over the coming years.

Situated 25km to the west of Lisbon, the school attracts families living in Cascais and the surrounding localities, from Oeiras to Sintra. There are even a few families that travel in from Lisbon.

Currently at IPS Cascais, the classroom average is 20 children per class, with a 1:10 teacher-student ratio. Enabling your children to become healthy, independent, and responsible members of society is of great importance. Pupils' personal, social and emotional development is encouraged by the supportive school ethos.
