College history


A commitment to education from 1941

That's how it all started

In the 1941 year, Avilés was a small village very different from what it is today, with a population that was around the 18.000 inhabitants and overcoming the serious damages caused by the civil war that had ended only two years before, with buildings in ruins, families destroyed for the lack of loved ones, ration cards and queues to buy bread, milk or coal.

Roads and roads in very poor condition made it even more difficult communication between the city and nearby towns. In those years, life was difficult in all aspects.

In these adverse social circumstances, a man emerged, a religious who saw in education a way of changing the world, recognizing its value as the engine of personal and social development.

Mr. Víctor Pérez García-Alvera was born in Juncedo (Molleda), Corvera de Asturias, the 8 of September of 1900 in the bosom of a family formed by his parents and six brothers. He began his studies at the Liceo Avilesino, continued Humanities at the Seminary of Valdediós, and finished his Ecclesiastical Studies at the Seminary of Oviedo, becoming ordained a priest. He obtained a degree in Philosophy and Letters from the University of Santiago de Compostela and a doctorate in Theology.

D. Victor was a kind man, affable, cordial, quite tolerant but firm in his decisions, with very clear ideas of what he wanted. He directed the Colegio San Luis de Pravia for 15 years. He had therefore a great experience in teaching and an undoubted teaching vocation, and with this background he started the School San Fernando.

College Foundation

The center began its classes the 13 of October of 1941 with 50 students of entrance, 34 of Baccalaureate and 17 of Commerce, in a villa of colonial style located in the number two of the street of the Magdalena de Avilés and property of D. Cayetano Prada.

At that time, and according to former founding students, the constructions that were there were the chalet and some tendejones attached to the perimeter walls. The rest of the land was to some extent invaded by the undergrowth, to whose elimination the own students contributed.

From the beginning and for almost two decades, the College offered boarding service, which was located on the third floor below deck. During the following years, the demand for school positions was increasing, and the School was expanding its facilities by building classrooms and laboratories attached to the chalet.

Extension of the School

In the 1950 year, the National Steel Company (ENSIDESA), a public company dedicated to the manufacture of steel, was set up in Avilés. The arrival of ENSIDESA changed the physiognomy of the region of Avilés, which went from being an eminently rural environment to an area with a large industrial presence.

It provoked a spectacular growth of the town of Avilés and other nearby towns, assuming also a great cultural and demographic impact with the arrival of thousands of working families from all over Spain.

The huge increase in population during the 50 years of the last century brought with it a great demand for school posts. The school expanded the number of classrooms with the construction of a building in the form of "L" attached to the outer walls of the plot. In this building, in addition to 10 classrooms, there was a study room that joined a chapel with sliding doors.

The remembered outdoor basketball court was also built, as well as the indoor sports area located next to the study hall.

Mr. José Martínez, new Director of the School

In Gijón he finished his degree as Commercial Professor, and later moved to London, where he perfected his knowledge of English. Upon his return, he began to teach English classes in schools San Fernando and Holy Angel.

D. José was a kind, enthusiastic, persuasive and open-minded person, which allowed him to cultivate the friendship of many people. Over the years, he was assuming greater responsibilities in the management and administration of the school until assuming the direction of the same.

Mr. José Martínez continued to carry out the work of the Director of the center until his death in the 1994 year, at which time his son, Mr. Javier Martínez, took over.

Transfer to the current school

José rented a house in Calvo Sotelo street, where 4 moved first courses of EGB while the construction was carried out of a new school in the same location with the purchase of an adjoining plot. At that time they studied in the San Fernando Near 1.000 students distributed between the two sites.

Jose soon contacted his owners, and after hard negotiations, in the summer of 1976 the College San Fernando He moved to his current location, merging the teachers' cloisters and the students of both centers. The San Agustín School had been built in 1965.

The new school has enormous proportions compared to the previous one, with a plot and buildings twelve times larger. This school was far from being finished, with playgrounds without asphalting, entire pavilions closed and unused, and even the gap of a pool that was not made and it was necessary to close for safety. The first efforts were devoted to making the school fully operational, which reached the 2.842 students in the 1982-83 course.

A new stage In the month of September of 1976 2.148 students began their studies, of which approximately 1.000 came from the two buildings of the San Fernando, approximately 500 students of the San Agustín School continued their studies in the San Fernando, and the rest of new incorporation.
