Eupheus is an innovative new international school in Loulé, featuring a purpose-built Pre-Prep and Preparatory School and a Lower Secondary School, offering a world-class education for students between the ages of 3-14.
The school campus consists of a Pre-Prep and Preparatory School that has been created to include and utilise cutting-edge educational technology. Ergonomically designed teaching areas will embrace the indoor and outdoor classroom for 21st century teaching and learning. The Pre-Prep classrooms have their own inside creative play area and the school throughout has state-of-the-art learning environments developed to stimulate and encourage teaching and learning at the highest level, with natural light flowing from the indoor to the outdoor classrooms.
The outdoor play area for the Pre-Prep and Preparatory children is unique, and has been specifically conceived by Eupheus to provide an innovative and fun experience, allowing children the ability to explore, learn, play, problem solve and develop their curiosity in a safe and ecologically friendly environment. It is crafted from natural products tailored to meet the needs of the forest school ethos.
The Lower Secondary site is adjacent to the Pre-Prep and Preparatory school. It is situated in its own spacious building and comprises interactive teaching areas, an enormous climate-controlled indoor sports facility and a purpose-built auditorium with its own sound room.
All of these facilities will be utilised by the whole school, and it is Eupheus’s intention to become an outstanding sporting school, fielding strong teams across the board of competition, while offering a programme that includes and encourages every level of ability.
All teachers at Eupheus have qualified teacher status QTS and are highly skilled practitioners in their chosen specialisms with extensive international teaching experience in the Algarve. An exceptionally gifted Royal School of Music trained Music co-ordinator has been specifically recruited from the UK to develop an extensive Eupheus music programme including the development of orchestras, choirs, bands and performances of every kind.
Eupheus encompasses the forest school concept, implementing its programmes of learning throughout all aspects of school life. Instilled in the Eupheus family is the belief that we have one planet and we must do all we can to protect it whilst learning from its wonders. Fundamentally, Eupheus fosters the relationship between the learner and the natural world and allows this to develop organically.
