New Pre-Prep and Preparatory School to open in Algarve in 2019

The Eupheus School will be a new state of the art, selective International Pre-Prep and Preparatory school for three to 11-year olds on a purpose-built site situated to the south of Loulé, located a short distance from junction 12 of the A22 motorway.

The school was conceived by a small team of experienced educationalists. One of the visionaries of the original Eupheus concept, Ms Penelope Best, will be Head of School. She is a highly experienced Primary Head, well known for her educational and philanthropic endeavours in the Algarve over the past 18 years.

At the Eupheus School, the International Primary curriculum will be delivered by fully-qualified and experienced teaching staff, personally recruited by Ms Best. Class sizes will be small, allowing an individual approach to learning for each child.

Uniquely, Eupheus will be an Apple school, enabling ICT to be incorporated within each area of the curriculum, ensuring children have the ability to become 21st century learners.

Commenting on Eupheus, Ms Best stated: “I believe that the happiness and wellbeing of children and teachers are the key to excellent achievement, with every individual feeling understood and valued. It was my aim to unite with a group of likeminded people to create a school that could truly achieve this.
“At Eupheus we have created a state-of-the-art Primary school, where children can learn in a safe and supportive environment that will allow them to embrace diverse learning strategies and lead them to achieving their own specific educational goals. Eupheus is where friendships will be made and lessons learned that will last a life-time.

“Please do come and visit us to see for yourself. You will be given a very warm Eupheus family welcome.”
