This formerly all-girls secondary school arose in the context of the Alvalade Plan and under the scope of the so-called “1958 Plan”. The first plan predicted the location of the school grounds in this new area of ​​urban expansion, and the proportionality of its scale in relation to the predicted population. The second one planned the construction of sixteen new secondary schools in the country as modern and functional spaces, distinct from the previously built historicist and monumental schools. This intervention, carried out under the Secondary School Modernisation Programme, implemented by Parque Escolar, projected its renovation, including infrastructural and technological modernisation. A covered sports field and a multipurpose room were built and designed as community-accessible equipment, while a new protruding block of white reinforced concrete, supported by pilotis, defined a covered plaza for the main entrance, reception and distribution of circulation.
