Nobel Algarve maintains a large library for reading, research and private study. The library houses nearly 16,000 books in seven languages: Portuguese, English, German, French, Dutch, Italian and Swedish.

Dictionaries, Encyclopaedias, fiction books and reference books are arranged alphabetically and by age group, from Pre-School to Secondary School. We also have a small but very precious collection of reference books, as well as resources related to career planning and university entrance.

The Librarian works closely with class and subject teachers to schedule use of the Library, so that maximum benefit is enjoyed by all.


The school’s infirmary stocks first aid equipment, as well as two beds and washing/ shower facilities. A First Aid Assistant staffs the infirmary throughout the school day to assess any student who requires medical attention.

Each student is required to have on file a medical record with all the information needed to ensure the proper assistance. Parents must include updated vaccination records, and ensure that routine vaccinations are up-to-date.

All boarding students require a health insurance policy provided by the school.


Nobel Algarve employs a full time School Psychologist, who works in consultation with parents and teachers to help wherever necessary for the benefit of our students.
