Promenade walk with Father Christmas

A school with family values at its core

International School São Lourenço is a community of 23 nationalities including English, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian.  

The students follow the English National Curriculum and have daily lessons in Portuguese.

Each child at International School São Lourenço, whether they are three or 18, has their own personal educational journey, with the students, parents and teachers all playing an important role in learning.

Children are taught to value themselves, their peers and those around them.  They participate regularly in fundraising for both local and overseas charities.

The curriculum is broad yet balanced, academic, creative and physical.  We feel this is the basis of a great education.

Our examination programme for SAT’S, IGCSE and A Level is flexible and personalised and has enabled our students to study at top universities around the world.

The academic results at IGCSE place International School São Lourenço in the top 12% of UK schools. We have accomplished this even though we are a non-selective school.  

We encourage all senior school students to take IGCSE´s and achieve results to the best of their ability.  100% of students meet or exceed their predicted grades.

The environment at our school has family values at its core.  As a result our students are happy and confident.  We believe this contributes to their academic success.
