Nobel Algarve Summer School

The Nobel International School Algarve Summer School offers summer school programs for three different age groups, from age 3-6, 6-12, and 12-17. The programs for these follow a similar plan year on year and the following pages have more information and application forms to download. These activities are designed not only to entertain students during the long summer holidays but to enable them to meet new friends and to come away with new stories, memories and confidence.

3 to 6 years old

Children currently enrolled in our pre-school have their own summer club that makes it different from the rest of the school year. Three themes will run across the program to ensure a wide variety of activities for any children taking part for the full six weeks. The club will offer a Mini Science Laboratory workshop for little scientists, a Mini Chef activity and an Art Studio for little artists. Every day, there will also be a visit to the beach or swimming pool at our boarding house in Armação de Pera and every Wednesday will see them off.
