Aljezur International School is located a short distance from the town of Aljezur in the western Algarve, Portugal. The school provides secondary education, taught in the English language, to children from 10 – 17 years of age following the Cambridge International syllabus and leading to Cambridge International IGCSE qualifications in a broad range of subjects.[1] Aljezur International School is an accredited University of Cambridge Examinations Centre and, as the only open exam centre in the western Algarve, accommodates both internal and external students for IGCSE examinations.
