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, 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. Through our education model, St. Peter's prepares students for academic, personal and professional success in an unpredictable future, developing vital skills that will help them overcome all challenges.
St. Peter's offers a personalised bilingual curriculum from Kindergarten and the option of the National Portuguese or the international curriculum from Grade 7 (including the IGCSE and 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'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.
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 have access to an enriching range of extracurricular activities both during the week and the weekends.
As part of the Inspired network, our students have access to world's best practices in education, outstanding arts and sports programmes, state of the art facilities, and Exchange Programmes.
