Alcaides de Faria Secondary School was founded in 1957. At the time it was housed in what is now the Barcelos Pottery Museum and was known as the Barcelos Industrial and Commercial School. In 1975 it moved to its present premises in more urban surroundings.
The intervention in the school took the form of the construction of a new building to house the ICT rooms, art rooms, laboratories, library, social spaces, multi-purpose hall and spaces for use of the school by the community.
The existing buildings were remodelled, bringing them in line with current comfort, safety and accessibility requirements.
The sports hall was renovated and a new gymnasium built, including support facilities (changing rooms, shower rooms and support spaces).
The school’s exterior spaces were also remodelled, focusing in particular on the leisure and sports spaces.
