Welcome to St. Paul's

St. Paul’s School is a positive agent of change, helping its pupils to be caring individuals ready to inspire and mobilise those around them to impact the world for the best

St. Paul’s was the first British School to be established in São Paulo (Brazil) and continues to offer an Anglo-Brazilian curriculum, embracing the best of both cultures. As an all-through (ages 3-18) co-educational school, offering the IGCSE and IB courses to pupils, we are affiliated to a global network of top UK Schools through our membership of HMC (Headmaster’s Conference) and COBIS (Council of British International Schools). Almost 100 years old, we draw on our proud heritage as the first British school in Latin America to be recognised as a British School Overseas (BSO) by the UK government. Yet, we look forward with creativity and confidence.

At St. Paul’s we always strive to be our better selves. We have the courage of our convictions, essential values, freedom to imagine and create. This is achieved through our high quality British and Brazilian holistic education which drives the personal and academic development of pupils, within a framework of a caring, inclusive and united community.

It is our aim to discover the passion and talents of every pupil, and create the right environment to develop these. The school prides itself on an excellent enrichment programme ranging from MUN to Duke of Edinburgh, from knitting classes to a robotics programme, from mathematical Olympiads to outstanding drama and music. We have been awarded as a Microsoft Showcase School and an Apple Distinguished School in recognition for our excellence in transforming and enhancing our physical and online learning environment to deliver more personalised education to our pupils. 

We believe in helping our pupils achieve their full intellectual, emotional, social, physical, artistic, creative and spiritual potential. An innovative, structured curriculum, combined with excellent teaching, state of the art facilities, and the best in pastoral care, equip pupils to flourish. Our commitment to broad educational experiences opens many opportunities for pupils who go on to leading universities in the United Kingdom, America and Brazil.
