Hi Deborah, we went to look around the International School in Tavira but I was a bit worried by the distinct lack of resources and what I would consider to be well stocked classrooms. Eg they have no science labs and the students have to walk to some municipal laboratories. Sports facilities were also lacking.

There are a lot of small, privately funded schools that are lacking in these areas. We eventually decided on www.nobelalgarve.com for our 7 year old son and couldn´t be happier. Follow them on Facebook and Twitter too to get an idea of activities they offer.  Good luck!
