Admissions at IPS Cascais

IPS Cascais British International School warmly welcomes children from all over the world. With 40 years’ experience, we are a growing private school and proud of our heritage and reputation within the Lisbon area. Now a Globeduate member, IPS Cascais offers the National Curriculum of England to both Primary and Secondary-aged children, blending a family environment with an enriching global education.

We are currently building a Secondary school. Year 8 will be available from September 2023 on a new, purpose-built site. The best way to find out about the school ethos is to fill in the form and come and visit us in person. We interview throughout the year and are always happy to meet prospective families.

We are currently enrolling, and accepting applications throughout the school year.

Children are considered for admission upon receipt of an Admissions Enquiry form. Places are mainly awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, depending on availability.

Occasionally, priority is given:
  • Siblings of current students
  • Children whose first language is not Portuguese or have had the majority of their education in English
  • First language English speakers
  • Families from a number of organizations with whom IPS has long-standing protocols.

We will be pleased to discuss your specific circumstances - please contact us with any questions.

Demand for schools in Lisbon

Demand for school places in our area has increased dramatically over the last few years and we recommend completing an Admissions Enquiry Form as soon as possible. We do not require a fee at this stage and there is no obligation to commit to the place but it does ensure that your child's name is on our waiting list.

Confirmation of an available place is explained clearly in our Terms and Conditions which we ask you to read carefully before any commitments are made. If you require any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
