COVID-19: Our school adheres to all the government safety recommendations, observing social distancing within the building (including classrooms), obligatory use of masks and hand sanitisation as standard.

Atena is a Language School and Tutoring Centre dedicated to providing quality teaching and support to adults and young learners. All our teachers are qualified in their own specific fields and offer a professional service using up-to-date learning materials. Here are just some of the services on offer at our establishment:


Portuguese lessons for adults: Taught by an experienced native teacher, using manuals that are specific to learners of Portuguese as a foreign language


Tutoring for young learners: We work with experienced teachers who specialise in their own subject areas of the Portuguese National Curriculum. This means that if your child is having difficulties in a particular subject within the Portuguese state school system, we will have a professional who can help them


Tutoring for English iGCSE students: If your child is having difficulties within this area, our qualified English teacher will be able to help find strategies to overcome them


Subject Tutoring for English National Curriculum: We have a bank of QTS teachers with experience in both the UK and International schools. Therefore, regardless of the curriculum, we can discuss and suggest a plan that will cater for their needs.


We are happy to teach and tutor on a 1-2-1 basis or in groups. Due to the current situation we find ourselves in, our group sizes are limited to the maximum numbers permitted by the Portuguese government, as we need to maintain the appropriate social distancing and conditions, for everyone’s safety. For this reason, our classrooms have been organised in a way that allows for everyone to have their own individual working space, whilst observing the regulations in place. In this new reality that we are all living, many people feel that the only safe way is to learn and work at a distance, in their home. At Atena, we believe that it is important to maintain as much social interaction as possible and that this can be achieved, as long as the environment is safe and procedures are followed.
