Founded in 1973/94, Águas Santas Secondary School initially started out in a former primary school in Pedrouços. In 1986/87 it moved to new premises at Rua Nova do Corim in Águas Santas, where it grew both in terms of buildings and pupil numbers.
This new intervention was based on the construction of a new building to house the school administration, ICT rooms, laboratories, library, social spaces, multipurpose hall and spaces to be used to open the school up to the surrounding community. Another building was also added to house the classrooms for the 2nd cycle of basic education.
The existing buildings were remodelled to bring them in line with the latest requirements in terms of comfort, safety and accessibility.
The intervention also included the construction of a gymnasium with respective support facilities (changing/shower rooms and support spaces).
The school grounds were also remodelled, in particular the recreation and sports areas.
