Welcome to Prime School

Message of the Executive Director

It is with great enthusiasm that we introduce you to our International  Educational Project, Prime School International,  carried out in collaboration with Cambridge International Education (CIE),  under the tutelage of the Portuguese Ministry of Education.

It has been 15 years since the start of this project at Sintra, resulting in the success story it is today: an international educational project where students from pre-school to college, are given the opportunity to develop their level of learning and grow to be efficient and sensitive citizens. We take pride in enabling our children to actively contribute to a more tolerant and cooperative world. Our learners are informed and creative problem solvers who pride themselves in being able to rise to the challenges of the 21st century.

Today, Prime School International boasts 570 students on two different campuses and a boarding house. This project is the result of a tremendous amount of hard work on behalf of all those involved.

At Prime School, we offer our learners a stimulating curriculum taught in a multicultural environment orientated towards  foreign students as well as  Portuguese nationals.  We strongly support a vision to challenge the curiosity, intelligence, and creativity of all our students. Not confined to simply educating and teaching, we endeavor to encourage independence of thought as well as a grounded capacity for reflection, critical analysis, and self-motivation. These skills are vital tools in this rapidly changing and globally interconnected world.

And thus, the Prime School motto: Shaping The Citizens Of An Interconnected World.

I hope you will enjoy your online visit to our website and I remain at your service should you wish to visit one of our schools. Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly, or any member of the Prime School team for or any additional information you may so require.

This course is for the ablest students who are seeking places on competitive degree courses at the most elite universities in the UK or internationally. A-levels are essential for any student considering applying to Oxford or Cambridge University, or medical school.

Boarding  House

At Prime, Boarding students are given so many opportunities to build a solid foundation for their future. Living away from home and balancing an advanced curriculum encourages them to become more disciplined and responsible. They’re also given the opportunity to advance academically and carefully map that into their future – whether in their furthering education, career aspirations or otherwise.  With curricula like the IGCSE or A-Levels, students have the chance to expand their understanding of a variety of subjects, exploring concepts they otherwise might not have been exposed to before university and tailoring their high school experience to fit into their future dreams.
