Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

We are a world class school and the first South American School to be recognised by the UK government as a British School Overseas. We are very proud of our strong heritage, traditions and values but are constantly looking forward; seeking to innovate and improve at every age and stage for every one of our pupils. Excellent teaching and learning and the very best pastoral care and co-curricular provision lies at the very heart of the school. With our bi-cultural and bilingual Anglo-Brazilian curriculum, we embrace both cultures and languages and have a strong set of shared values which shape and nurture the experience that our pupils enjoy.
