Our Early Learning approach is child-centric and places each student in a rich, caring, and relational learning environment. Creativity, alongside a rigorous literacy and mathematics pathway, forms the foundations of an international future for your child. Our approach is founded on the following principles:  

  • The Competent, Relational child.  

  • Creativity in childhood for Lifelong Academic achievement  

  • Deep Learning-Responsive Teaching

  • International Futures 

This approach has been developed through many years of research and practice across our 70 schools and is unique to us.  

Throughout their schooling, students will be immersed in the very best international education. The British IGCSE curriculum creates open-minded, creative and dynamic individuals, with students learning from first-hand experience – not just textbooks. The King’s College School programme provides a structured and rigorous learning pathway that ensures deep learning and skill development across a broad range of subject areas.  Students follow the Cambridge International curriculum from Reception to Year 11, ending with the International GCSE examinations.  

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma programme, a world-renowned and internationally recognised qualification, which gives students a robust preparation for university or the world of work by providing a transformative learning experience to build confidence, independence and an inquiring mind. Upon graduation, students receive the globally recognised IB Diploma. 

This blended curriculum truly advantages students at King’s College School, Cascais. From the strong base provided by the Inspired Approach to Early Years education, to the academic rigour and subject stretch from the globally acclaimed Cambridge International IGCSEs, to embedding the transformational global learner profile characteristics from the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme along with language acquisition, this is a formula that is proven to support the most successful transition into the leading universities in the world or the world of work.
