Founded in 1972, Nobel Algarve British International School has long been regarded as Southern Portugal's premier international school. The school joined Globeducate in 2019 one of the world's leading K12 education groups with 55+ premium bilingual and international schools, and online programmes, in nine countries, educating more than 28,000 students.

Nobel Algarve British International School comprises two outstanding campuses: the flagship campus in Lagoa, and the state-of-the-art campus in Almancil. Together the campuses educate more than 1,000 students from more than 40 nationalities, aged three to 18. Students follow either a contextualised English National Curriculum, sitting IGCSEs and A-levels, or the Portuguese Curriculum in Lagoa, with the vast majority enrolling in some of the world's leading higher-education institutions.

Nobel Algarve British International School belongs to the Globeducate British International School cluster, with sister schools in Spain, France, Italy and the UK. Being part of this cluster creates opportunities for teachers and students to benefit from working on shared goals and projects such as a rich Outdoor Learning programme and on developing a British-style House System. Being a member of Globeducate brings other benefits such as projects with LEGO® Education and the Globeducate partnership with WWF (World Wildlife Fund) and Eco-Schools. Students also take part in regular global events and competitions with other schools in the group worldwide.

Both campuses have recently unveiled two ambitious expansion plans, an impressive project branded 'Nobel Algarve - Shaping the Future' to be developed in three different phases. Nobel Algarve Lagoa and Almancil will be equipped with new buildings and new classrooms with state-of-the-art features such as a next-generation Science Lab, ICT suites and multimedia centre in Almancil and a new multi-purpose gymnasium/performance space, a bespoke pre-school, and a brand-new canteen in Lagoa.

Nobel Algarve British International School believes learning goes beyond the classroom and equips pupils to face challenges confidently, building character so they manage failure with tenacity and resilience.
