Prep pupil works on the drawing of a clown

The St. Paul’s curriculum is aligned with the English National Curriculum incorporating the UK National Curriculum, Cambridge IGCSEs and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. We also incorporate the requirements laid out by the Brazilian Core Curriculum.  

Every pupil is inspired to take advantage of the variety of enrichment opportunities available and venture beyond the boundaries of academic curriculum to understand the wider world around them. We offer many artistic, cultural and sporting  activities, field trips that enhance learning experiences.  

We also contribute to the development of each pupil’s sense of identity by helping them to understand the spiritual, moral, social and cultural aspects of our diverse society. Pauleans are acutely aware of the local, national and global dimensions of their lives.
