The Anglo-Portuguese School of London is being proposed by a group of professionals and educationalists all of whom are committed to the principles and benefits of bilingual education.
The Lead Proposer for the project is Regina dos Santos Duarte Phd. Since 2011, Regina has been coordinating the teaching of Portuguese Language in the UK and the Channel Islands, working with over 4,000 students in over 80 schools.
The project also has the backing of the Camões Institute, the Portuguese Embassy in London and the Portuguese Ministry of Education. We are grateful for the sponsorship and support of Talent Group which is providing significant support to help us realise our ambitions.
We are always looking for more volunteers to join our group. If you are interested in being part of this exciting venture, please get in touch.

Trustees are responsible for overseeing the management side of the school: strategy, policy, budgeting and staffing. They enable the school to run as effectively as possible, working alongside senior leaders and supporting teachers to provide excellent education to children. The Trustees at APSoL will form committees where they can do this collaboratively.
