Exploring, Understanding, Acting:
Together we change the World

Colégio Catarina de Bragança is situated in Morelinho, Sintra. Its educational offer comprises children from nursery to primary school.

Colégio Catarina de Bragança educates complete children, who are creative, autonomous, collaborative and supportive, and concerned with intervening in an active and responsible way in the school and in the community.

About the School

Colégio Catarina de Bragança ensures an individualised and close follow-up with students and families. The school aims for the child to grow up with Art, valuing free expression and creativity. The child is recognised as a unique being, with specific needs, looking for the appropriate responses to each stage of their development, privileging the meaning and sense they attribute to things and events.

What distinguishes us

Colégio Catarina de Bragança encourages the active and meaningful participation of children in their process of development and acquisition of learning. The orientation of the teaching-learning processes is part of the Modern School Movement´s model (MEM), as a pillar, especially in the organisation of educational places and time, and the Reggio approach, in its holistic view of the child. The pedagogical team reflects daily to identify a wide range of active methodologies that contribute, not to the institution of children, but to their construction in the various areas of development (emotional, social, cognitive, physical, artistic).

Educational Offer

Catarina de Bragança School offers its students an exciting and complete educational project, that contributes to the education of creative, autonomous, collaborative, and solidary children, concerned in intervening in an active, and responsible manner in school and in the community.

Dedicated to early education, it has an educational offer from Nursery to primary, ensuring an attentive and personalised transition between the different school years.
