A Differentiated and bilingual approach to Excellence in Education

Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will have to make. We recognise this and at Colégio Santiago Internacional we ensure that every child achieves their full potential.

Through differentiated, highly enjoyable and engaging learning experiences, pupils acquire the skills of the English National Curriculum.

We believe in educating the whole child. As well as academic progress, your child will develop into a responsible global citizen, guided by our school’s principles of honesty, integrity and respect for others. Pupils are encouraged to play a part in their own development. They are challenged and given the opportunity to discover their own abilities.

Our classroom teachers are UK and Portugal qualified, with up-to- date training so that teaching standards are always high. Lessons are differentiated according to each child ability a bilingual approach is also used so that pupils communicate from an early age in English and Portuguese and also understand about both cultures. All of this guarantees that every child in our care receives the best possible education.

CSi team works hard to create an environment where children enjoy learning and feel safe and confident to participate. We believe that children should have fun while they are at school and that mistakes are a natural step in the education process and create new learning opportunities.

We encourage you to come and visit our school to sense the unique atmosphere of CSi.
