St. Peter’s International School, located in Palmela, only 30 minutes from Lisbon city centre, has more than 27 years of experience offering both the Portuguese and the International (IGCSE & IBDP) curricula.

With a growing demand from numerous national and international families, the school will now offer options for weekly or full boarding to students from the age of 14. The new boarders will have the opportunity to join the current and diverse school community of more than 1,000 students and 40 nationalities and benefit from a unique and individualised academic programme, as well as a personalised Career and University guidance.

Additionally, St. Peter’s Boarding Residence will offer close pastoral care and 24 hour personal assistance - students will have 24/7 personal and academic support from the House Parents - and different cultural, sports and social activities during weekends and school breaks.

Students living in the new Boarding Residence will benefit from 18 double bedrooms (9 for girls and 9 for boys) with ensuite bathrooms, personal study space and air-conditioning.

Boarders have access to the Boarding Residence common areas, the Sports Centre and Learning Resource Centre. The school offers a wide range of extracurricular activities on-site (from Rugby to Drama or Violin) as well as off-site activities. During the weekends, boarding students will have the opportunity to go on excursions and trips to various places around.

“With the ambition and aspiration to be much more than just a dormitory, but rather a second home for all students, St. Peter’s International School is offering proven academic excellence in top facilities and a great location for the lowest fees available for a boarding school in Europe,” said a spokesman from the school.
