Good news for Gran Alacant with the Santa Pola Ayuntamiento having finally received confirmation from the Consellería for the construction of the first Gran Alacant secondary school, a project that is included in the current Edificant Plan, which has an investment of more than 700 euro million to build more than 200 colleges and institutes and refurbish another 500.
The new institute will be located behind the back of the CEIP Vicenta Ruso, on Avenida Scandinavia, since it is a location where the land is already earmarked for an educational facility in the General Urban Plan.
“Since we came into office we have had many meetings with the Ministry to discuss the need for an institute in Gran Alacant”, explained María Dolores Tomás, Councillor for Education, “with the Edificant Plan we decided to make a bid for the institute, which was accepted from the very beginning, but now we are all delighted that the confirmation has finally arrived.”
The institute, which will have capacity for 1,120 students, will have a total of 24 classrooms of Compulsory Secondary Education and a further 8 Baccalaureate classrooms for further education in Sciences and Humanities.
In addition, there will be common areas for projects such as a cafeteria, a gymnasium and sports tracks.
This first institute for Gran Alacant has been one of the constant demands of parents in the area, since they have always considered it essential for the needs of the students living in the suburbs to be fully educated without having to be traveling daily to attend their classes.
Once the definitive resolution has been received, the drafting of the project can be tendered, prior to final tendering for the building’s construction.
