Students at Nobel International School Algarve enjoy many educational advantages
Small class sizes promote optimal achievement. With a low average class size, our students enjoy personalised attention and one-to-one learning.
In A Level classes, we strive to limit class size to an average of six students per teacher.
Intensive, personalised English instruction. Our staff of highly qualified specialist teachers provide additional support, differentiated materials and essential one-to-one inductions to English for those who require it. Students wishing to join Year 10 or Year 12 with a need for additional language tuition are now able to join a bespoke Bridging Year for English Language at Lagoa.
Sport to promote fitness and teamwork. Nobel Algarve students compete in cross country, tennis, track, athletics, rugby, football and basketball against local state schools and other international schools in regional, national and some international events. New sports are also being developed and children at our Lagos bi-lingual primary school have the choice of swimming lessons.
Drama to build self-confidence. Our students are encouraged to take part in drama productions and attend theatre performances from the youngest age –everyone looks forward to the annual primary school nativity play at both our Lagoa and Lagos campuses. Drama at IGCSE is now a popular and successful exam subject open to all pupils.
Art to inspire the spirit. With four art rooms staffed by dedicated teachers, our students produce a high standard of work. Our pupils’ embroidery has achieved national recognition, while examples of student-designed glazed tiles, a traditional Portuguese craft, are displayed around the school.
Expeditions to reconnect with nature. Classes and student groups regularly venture outside the classroom to explore the natural world and to enjoy the many recreational and outdoor education opportunities available in the Algarve. Year 10 students can take part in the annual Journey of Discovery,
a unique outdoor experience designed to build self-awareness, confidence, and teamwork skills.
Science, Information and Communications Technology for the future. Realising the importance of technology knowledge and skills in the 21st Century, Nobel International School Algarve nurtures the development of a high standard of competence in these areas with excellent opportunities for younger children to experience practical science.
Work experience to prepare for success. Every Year 10 student (aged 14 – 15) takes part in “Work Experience Week,” where they sample a job area, industry or profession, and contribute to a real work environment.
Southern Portugal’s only boarding programme. Nobel International School Algarve offers an exceptional boarding programme that encourages independence while ensuring student safety and health. Students, who can board full time or on a flexible basis, benefit from first class, round-the-clock pastoral care and they enjoy comfortable accommodation and a wide range of leisure activities set in the context of a family-run boarding house.
