Message of the Principal
Welcome from Prime School Colleges of Portugal!
It is with great enthusiasm that we embrace this exciting new phase in the development of our schools; a Tri-lingual Educational Project carried out in collaboration with Cambridge International Education (CIE) and the Cervantes Institute (DELE), all under the tutelage of the Portuguese Ministry of Education.
It has been four years since the start of this project at Colégio Infanta D. Maria de Portugal in Sintra, resulting in the success story it is today: a trilingual educational project where students from pre-school to secondary school, are given the opportunity to develop their level of learning and grow to be efficient and sensitive citizens. WE take pride in enabling our children to actively contribute to a more tolerant and cooperative world. Our learners are informed and creative problem solvers who pride themselves in being able to rise to the challenges of the 21st century.
Today, the Colégio Infanta D. Maria de Portugal in Sintra boasts 150 students and we are proud to have invested in the reopening of a new location, the former 1960’s home O Colégio da Cidadela. This project is the result of a tremendous amount of hard work on behalf of all those involved.
At Prime School we offer our learners a stimulating curriculum taught in a multicultural environment. Orientated towards Portuguese nationals as well as foreign students, we strongly support a vision to challenge the curiosity, intelligence and creativity of all our students. Not confined to simply educating and teaching, we endeavour to encourage independence of thought as well as a grounded capacity for reflection, critical analysis and self motivation. These skills are vital tools in this rapidly changing and globally interconnected world. I strongly recommend that you watch the video “Did You Know?” You will note that although this video dates from 2010, it explains our mission exceptionally well (to view please double click on the icon to the right of your screen).
And thus, the Prime School motto: Shaping The Citizens Of An Interconnected World.
