Our School in Restelo's Bilingual Approach for Outstanding Achievement

Our Early Learning School in Restelo provides a bilingual environment where children learn both Portuguese and English through language immersion. Each classroom is led by two educators: one who speaks only Portuguese and another who speaks only English. Inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy, our young learners explore diverse subjects in both languages in different learning corners and through project and play-based activities. This approach builds a solid foundation of knowledge and skills to progress to and succeed in Junior School.

The Junior School programme integrates elements from the National Portuguese Primary Years Curriculum and the Cambridge Curriculum to offer the best bilingual learning experience. Some subjects are taught in both languages, while others are exclusively in English. This approach enables students to reach their full personal and academic potential in their subsequent school years. By the end of Junior School, our learners have acquired bilingual proficiency in comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing, preparing them to excel in the international curriculum offered at our Alfragide campus starting in Grade 5.
