In 1973, knowing that within 3 years the head of the school and its educational approach would change, six teachers from Santa María del Mar school decided to create a new project of a private school in La Coruña under the name COLEGIO MIXTO OBRADOIRO, Obradoiro Mixed School (at a time when the immense majority of schools were boys only or girls only schools). Immediately, two more teachers joined the project and two more a few years later. For this purpose, we constituted a professional educators mercantile society under the name: Promotora Educativa Coruñesa S.L.
Here and now, we must express our deepest gratitude to the Jesuits from Santa María del Mar School of La Coruña from whom from the first moment, have always received their support and collaboration
We must specially remember Jesús Garrido, Joaquín García de Dios, Marcial Estévez, Jaime García Agudín (for many years teacher and coordinator of religious education in our centre), José Luis Blanco Vega (who taught film criticism and poetry in Obradoiro) and José Luis Castro.
