JAVEA will be the location for another international school.
The site, in the Las Laderas area, has been earmarked by the International Schools Partnership (ISP) and the group’s finance director recently met Javea’s mayor Jose Chulvi and other local councillors to discuss the project.
ISP, which acquired Colegios Laude – a chain of seven private Spanish schools – for €2.8 million last June, intends to build on the 20,000-square-metre site bought from the developers who built the first phase of villas at the Las Laderas urbanisation.
ISP was looking for a strategic location between Gandia and Benidorm, sources said, and presence of the Laude Lady Elizabeth School in Benitachell was a determining factor.
Asked for his opinion by the provincial Spanish press, Chulvi replied that although ISP had outlined its plans there was still no definitive project. When the time came the Town Planning Department, amongst others, would make a decision.
Oscar Anton, Councillor for Finance, Foreign Residents and Contracts, was more forthcoming. The school would be strategic for the municipality and “an interesting investment,” he said.
