IPS is a school that prides itself on the warmth of its welcome to children and parents from around the world. A small school of about 300 children, of 40 different nationalities, 20 per cent coming from the host nation. Situated 25Km to the west of Lisbon to the north of Cascais, it attracts children from families living in Cascais, all along the ‘linha’ and from Sintra and Malveira da Serra. The multi-national community represented at IPS by pupils and their families as well as staff, helps to create a learning environment which fosters a global understanding and appreciation of the variety of cultures and of each other. We promote the values of caring, self-discipline, respect, humour, a love of learning and a sense of discovery. We are proud of the high academic standards attained by our children, and encourage them to achieve their best in all aspects of the curriculum.
