Seen as one of the cornerstones of the school, the Isabel Simão Library is an educational centre and integrator of multiple literacies. 

Playing an increasingly decisive role in the education of those who use it, formally or informally, this cultural centre allows students to use their skills. In other words, it is the materialization of our motto “Fons Sapientiae”. 

And, in a more than just tribute to one of the mentors of the St. Peter’s International School project, the Isabel Simão Library personifies, in itself, its humanist design in the education of our students, inciting them to multiple and crucial strategies for their academic success, personal performance and professional future.

Furthermore, being a place of intersections and collaboration for the development of literacy, its mission enables all members of the educational community to become more capable, more aware, more critical and more involved individuals in the construction of society, that is, true users of information in all media and means of communication.

Furthermore, as one of the complements in the support of knowledge and an ally to the teaching activity, the Isabel Simão Library offers access to a number of resources: both physical and digital. On the other hand, it is also an independent space for learning and developing fun activities.

Finally, as purpose is not limited to its physical space, the Isabel Simão Library extends to other areas through numerous educational and cultural activities, thematic meetings with authors, exhibitions and sharing of different knowledge through its clubs.


If we consider the resources that teachers should have available, we can consider those necessary to develop practical work of excellence. 

Always at the forefront of teaching in Portugal, St. Peter’s International School has two excellently equipped laboratories on its premises. 

In these facilities, laboratory activities are carried out, with the use of specific, more or less conventional materials, with the necessary special conditions being taken into account, namely safety. 



The work involves the control and manipulation of variables and is therefore called experimental work. From simple experiments, such as the observation of cells under the microscope, to more complex investigations, involving the use of reagents or biological samples, our students will be able to experience countless innovative activities, which allow them to observe in vivo concepts taught in class, develop their critical and analytical spirit, formulate hypotheses and test them in a practical way.
