Bright International School Algarve is the latest school to be acquired by the international schools managed by the Sharing Education Group.

Located in Loulé, the school still called the Eupheus International School was inaugurated in 2019 becoming a benchmark education establishment in the region, with solid bases that the Sharing Education Group now intends to raise to new heights.

In line with the vision of the group, this rebranding and official transition to the new name reflects the school’s commitment to foster a brilliant and inspiring environment for pupils, staff, parents and the community in general.

Miguel Ladeira Santos, CEO of the group said, “We have designed improvements for the Algarve school concentrated in three key areas — academic perfection, investment in infrastructure
(Sporting facilities, art, science, music and media laboratories) and the creation sports and performing arts programmes. At the same time we foresee the renovation of three buildings that will enable us to increase the number of students by around 200”.

To accompany this process and carry out the pedagogical coordination of the project, the new Bright International School Algarve will have the support of Tom Caston as a board member, who comes from the British schools group MPW Cambridge who had a vast experience in the leadership of schools with the Cambridge curriculum.

Bright International School Algarve will join two other schools that are part of the Sharing Education Group: International Sharing School Madeira that from the next academic year will have a new address, which will include a residential area for students, teachers, researchers and digital nomads, and which already has around 250 pupils from 30 nationalities; and International Sharing School Taguspark, integrated in the largest science and technology park in Portugal, in Oeiras Valley, and currently has over 700 pupils and over 60 nationalities and also currently has an expansion plan at its current campus.

The Sharing Education Group’s educational establishments are the only international schools operating in Portugal to take children from 4 months to 18 years, from the cradle to secondary school respectively.

They operate with IB programmes and, in the case of the future Bright International School Algarve, with the Cambridge curriculum.
