It is accredited by the Council of British International Schools (COBIS) and delivers the National Curriculum of England.

CEO of Globeducate Portugal and UK, and Head of School of Nobel International School Algarve since 2016, Mike Farrer, said: “I have been immensely impressed with the dedication of the teachers at IPS and the quality of education there. I look forward to working closely with the team there, led by Lars and also Headmaster Robert Taylor, and to introducing them to our other Globeducate schools and to colleagues here in the Algarve. I am delighted that everyone at IPS is looking forward to future collaboration with colleagues in the group and I am sure that once normal life and travel resumes we will be planning regular exchanges and competitions between our primary schools in the Algarve and in Lisbon.”
