A message from our
Global Education Director.

King’s College School is excited to be leading the way in premium, global education in Portugal. Portugal, and especially Cascais, is a top destination for internationally-minded families. With the excellent facilities, carefully selected and hand-picked teachers, combined with a premium curriculum offer, this is a first-class school. It is close to the sea and the hills, so we can take advantage of our environment as part of the learning process. The climate and welcoming community also make it an ideal place for boarders to live and to explore the surroundings.

Although King’s College School, Cascais is the first to open in Portugal, King’s College has a revered 50 year history in delivering a premium education internationally. King’s College School, Cascais forms part of the Inspired group, who spearhead excellence in international education across the world.


It is our ambition to create a school that students and staff look forward to being part of every day. Our Inspired three pillars approach of Academics, Sport and Creative & Performing Arts is underpinned by an ethos that creates a rich and transformative learning experience for every student. We strive to cultivate their inner passions and inspire new ambitions.

Our global outlook is derived from the expertise and support of the Inspired global education group. When students join King’s College School, Cascais, they also become part of an exciting global student network that connects them to a world of opportunities. Inspired’s forward-thinking approach gives our students the supportive framework they need to learn well, explore widely, develop resilience, foster curiosity and form lifelong connections.

Students joining us benefit from the uniquely developed Inspired Approach to Early Years Education, building up through the world-renowned Cambridge International Primary and Secondary curriculum offering IGCSEs, to culminate with the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme which has proven so successful in supporting students to access the best universities in the world.  King’s College School, Cascais offers a learning pathway unlike any other, that ensures students can truly flourish and succeed. 

An important part of that success is considering how our students interact with their local community. We’ll draw upon the local Portuguese culture, values and heritage in order to enhance our academic offer through the British curriculum and International Baccalaureate Diploma. It’s an approach taken across many Inspired schools, and it’s proven to create a cohort of globally-minded, well-rounded and successful world-ready citizens that can truly flourish in their chosen fields.

I hope you enjoy exploring our website to see the fantastic education, facilities and experience that we have to offer your children. 

I look forward to welcoming your sons and daughters to our fantastic new school in Cascais, Portugal.
