St. Peter's International school is a coeducational private school with three decades of experience in providing the best Portuguese and international education. It offers a competitive, high-quality education from nursery to secondary school, ensuring that students have access to the best opportunities and a high level of support to achieve their full academic and personal potential.

We are a part of Inspired Education, the leading global premium group of schools that offer excellence in education to over 75,000 students worldwide. From exchange programmes to exclusive camps, to leadership conferences and shared learning experiences, Inspired offers a range of enriching global opportunities which give students a chance to travel, meet peers from other countries and become a part of a vibrant international community.

Our guiding mission is to build self-reliant, critical, and creative students, who are prepared for academic, personal and professional success in an ever-changing world. We seek to promote the development of the skills and conceptual understandings that will help students to overcome whatever challenges they may face.

Our school offers the Portuguese National Curriculum and an International programme. In preschool we begin our bilingual education programme and students from Grade 1 to 4 may follow a bilingual education based on the Portuguese national curriculum, or from September 2023 can opt to join the Cambridge Primary Programme which is taught in English. From Grade 5 to 12, students are given the choice to follow the Portuguese National Curriculum or, they can choose an international pathway that offers continuity of the Cambridge Programme until completion of the IGCSE, followed by the IB Diploma Programme. St. Peter's is a school with outstanding academic results in both national and international exams, ensuring that students have access to top tier universities either in Portugal or further afield.

Located only 30 minutes from Lisbon, St. Peter's extensive 37,000 sqm campus has outstanding facilities for academics, arts, and sports, including dedicated music and drama rooms, a modern library, 4 fully equipped laboratories, 3 football pitches, a rugby pitch and 2 tennis courts. In addition, St. Peter's is home to the first boarding school in the Lisbon area, an extension of our commitment to excellence. Families living abroad can guarantee their children have access to an international, individualised education in a safe, comfortable, purpose-built environment. Boarding students have access to an extensive range of extracurricular and enrichment activities throughout the week and weekends.
