New preparatory school to open in the Algarve in September
A new pre-preparatory and preparatory international school is to open this September near Loulé in the Algarve.
The Eupheus School promises to be a new state-of-the-art, selective school for three to 11-year-olds on a purpose-built site located to the south side of Loulé, a short distance from junction 12 of the A22 motorway.
The school is a project from a small team of experienced educationalists. One of the visionaries of the original Eupheus concept, Ms. Penelope Best, will be Head of School. Best is a highly-experienced Primary Head, well known for her educational and philanthropic endeavours in the Algarve over the past 18 years.
“At Eupheus we have created a state-of-the-art Primary school where children can learn in a safe and supportive environment that will allow them to embrace diverse learning strategies and lead them to achieve their own specific educational goals.
“I believe that the happiness and wellbeing of children and teachers are key to excellent achievement, with every individual feeling understood and valued. It was my aim to unite with a group of likeminded people to create school a school that could truly achieve this,” says Penelope Best. So far the school, which opens in September, has 40 children signed up with many more admissions expected by the end of the summer with plans to open a secondary school in the near future.
