The parties will invest 15million€ in to the project, which is expected to be complete and ready for students in 2018.
Laude, who own the Lady Elizabeth School to which the new facilities will sit adjacent, have been looking to initiate the secondary school project for some time and also explored options in other locations before collaborating with Grupo VAPF to further develop on the Cumbre del Sol.

With properties having been acquired by families from all over the world.
The new school will stand out above all for its sports facilities. A ‘sports city’ will be built complete with a soccer field, two basketball courts and a heated swimming pool.
The City Council will sign a collaboration agreement with Laude and Grupo VAPF so that local residents can use these facilities.
The City Council are also keen to come to an agreement with the two companies over public use of the new auditorium, which will hold 640 spectators.
The school will have 30 large classrooms along with two special education and support classrooms, four regular science labs, a food science lab, an art classroom, two music classrooms complete with two studios, three computer rooms and a library.
