History[edit]

The school, which opened in 1962, was established by pied-noir people leaving Algeria.[3] In the aftermath of the Independence of Algeria large numbers of pied-noirs settled in Alicante,[6] leading to the establishment of the new French school.[7]

It was initially inside an apartment building on Calle San Vicente. Until 1965 the school occupied a building in Alicante. That year it moved to a different building in Vistahermosa (es), Alicante. In 1970 it moved again to Albufereta (es), Alicante.[3] Several pied-noirs had moved to Albufereta; 65 of them lived there in 1965. By 2001 French-speakers had a lot of influence in Albufereta and French was commonly spoken there.[8]

In 2005 the school moved into its current location in El Campello.[3]
