2nd and 3rd cycles (5th to 9th grade)

In the 2nd cycle it is particularly important to provide students with a quiet and humanizing transition, smoothing the adjustment to a new cycle in which the system of a single teacher is left behind. The teaching staff of the Real Colégio de Portugal maintains a demanding educational system, scientific and specialized, but in a dynamic and motivating environment for students, which allows closeness, trust, dialogue and personal relationship from a pedagogical perspective.

The Psychology Office represents a major asset at this point, and can be an essential element to a direct and coordinated intervention in the monitoring and guidance in organization and study programs, and in the transition from the 3rd cycle to the Secondary (High School).

In addition, the Real Colégio’s Project provides for the students of the 2nd and 3rd cycles development and participation in initiatives, programs, debates, sports and intellectual events, social work or other events that contribute to the diversification of the students’ education.

All classrooms are equipped with ergonomic and adjustable furniture, IT infrastructure, internet and interactive whiteboard. Students in the 2nd and 3rd cycles have at their disposal large laboratories equipped for classes and activities of the scientific subjects.

The school’s sports facilities and areas are suitable to the practice of different sports and disciplines, always ensuring that safety and comfort levels are appropriate for students of all ages.

In addition to the basic skills, the school provides the students with an increasingly diverse range of Sports, Creative, Musical and Linguistic extracurricular activities.

The Real Colégio de Portugal provides the 2nd and 3rd cycle students with a consistent and diverse curriculum which includes the proper preparation for the 6th and 9th years Ministry of Education examinations.
