Our history Anchored in our reality. Our sights set on the world.

The school was founded by Juan Pías and Dolores Peleteiro in 1985.

The college building dates from 1984 and was designed by architect César Portela. It is located on a hilltop which was probably once occupied by a pre-Roman encampment, which led to it being named Chester (from the Old English ceaster). From the outset its educational project was markedly international, and indeed it was the first international school in the Spanish region of Galicia.
