The Centre was founded in 1943 by Mr. Alberto Villanueva Escamilla. At the beginning, the school was located at 31 Trafalgar Street and consisted of two single classrooms. In 1947 it moved to new premises in Avenue. del Puerto, where the church of Patriarca San José is now located. Later, in 1956, another move was made to the same Avenue. del Puerto nº 185, increasing the number of classrooms to three for boys and two for girls.
In 1970, the current location was built in street Rodrigo de Pertegás, nº 29, on a building destined exclusively for school, and Mr. Alberto Villanueva Mateo took over the management of the centre. Pre-school classes 3, 4 and 5 years old had one classroom per course and the courses from 1st to 8th grade of E.G.B. had two classrooms per year. The definitive classification of the school dates from 29th April 1976.
At present, the centre is made up of key stage one to key stage three, respectively, located in C/Rodrigo de Pertegás, 29. In the year 2000, due to the death of the previous headmaster, Mr. Alberto Villanueva Ahicart took over the post.
