Princess Leonor, who is the heir to the Spanish throne, is following in the footsteps of her father King Felipe VI, who also studied at the school. The institution was founded in 1952 and aims to "provide a solid training that prepares intellectually and ethically to play a useful profession for the individual and for society."
