Library

Nobel Algarve Library offers students a large, bright space with beautiful views of the local environment. Here students can read, research and invest time in private study. The library houses books in seven languages: Portuguese, English, German, French, Dutch, Italian and Swedish.

Dictionaries, Encyclopaedia, 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.

Following the first phase of a library upgrade project, students benefit from improved wifi access, six new computer stations, modern desks and furniture, and younger pupils love to spend time in the Primary Reading Corner with bright cushions and bean bags to encourage them to associate reading with pleasure.

The Librarian, Isabel Avo, works closely with class and subject teachers to schedule use of the Library, so that maximum benefit is enjoyed by all. A published children´s book illustrator, her art work can also be found on the walls of the Primary Reading Area.


Infirmary

The school’s infirmary stocks first aid equipment, as well as two beds and washing / disabled toilet and shower facilities.  We have a school nurse and when she is absent, 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.


Counselling

Nobel Algarve employs two full-time School Psychologists, one for each section, who work in consultation with parents and teachers to help wherever necessary for the benefit of our students. The team also includes a Learning Support teacher to work with children who have additional learning needs.
