Before the renovation of Don Sancho II Secondary School under the Secondary School Modernisation Programme, the school consisted of 4 blocks: a main block of three storeys connected by covered external walkways to the gym/canteen and workshop blocks and the most recent block (built in the 1980s) housing the amphitheatre, laboratories, library and canteen. The new complex now consists of five blocks.
The new intervention provided for renovation of the 158-seat amphitheatre, a better location for the library and a new multi-purpose hall with 127 seats for conferences, meetings and exhibitions. As the true “heart” of the school, the library now occupies a central position in the complex, with access to the exterior all around.
Taking into account its characteristics and satisfactory state of conservation, the oldest (at around 60 years of age) and most important building in the existing complex now houses the laboratories and classrooms.
