Welcome from the Head

A very warm welcome to St Julian’s School

On its beautiful historic site in Carcavelos, close to central Lisbon and Cascais, St. Julian’s has been offering an outstanding education since 1932. Our traditions reflect the uniqueness of our identity; as a British international school in Portugal we provide three different curriculum programmes depending on the section of the school the student attends. These range from the local Portuguese system, through to the English National Curriculum and IGCSEs to the final two years of the IB international Diploma, which provides a gateway to universities all over the world.

At St. Julian’s we believe in developing our students to become adults that you will be proud of. Our programmes are designed to foster independence, commitment, responsibility, honesty and respect alongside excellent academic achievement.

We are an international school with over 1,100 students from over 40 different countries and we work hard to celebrate these different cultures and to enlighten our students about the wider world in which they live.

Our students, from age 3 to 18, are developed and challenged with our structured curriculum that allows them to flourish in our warm and inviting learning environment inspired by dedicated and passionate teachers.
We believe a happy student is one who will succeed and we work hard to ensure all students achieve their potential throughout their time with us.

Through their educational experience at St. Julian’s we expect our students to grow in confidence, be articulate, be engaged, have pride in themselves as well as their school and display high personal standards. Our students are taught to understand that it is through their actions and their choices that they bring credit to themselves, their school and their parents.

St. Julian’s is an exceptional learning community and I would be delighted to welcome you for a visit.
