This new project began in October 2019 and during the last two months has shown a significant progress and is ahead of schedule. The Nobel International School Almancil Campus will initially be a Pre-School and Primary School, but with a view to grow into middle school and is designed to incorporate architectural elements that allow for a mindfulness curriculum, with a Pause Pod, sensory gardens and a Feng Shui inspired central quad. A dedicated Astroturf, Multi-Media Centre, Multi-Purpose Hall, Library and dedicated playground for Pre-School which will create a dynamic and forward-thinking 21st Century learning environment and classrooms will all be WiFi-linked and include smart boards. It will be providing an ecologically and academic rigorous curriculum allowing the children to be prepared for an ever changing world.
The new campus will join the family of Nobel schools in the Algarve spreading the Nobel brand from Lagos to Lagoa and now Almancil. Added to this expansion Nobel is now part of the Globeducate group that has 51 schools worldwide and this membership will only bring added benefits to the students of all the Nobel Schools.
