  • A secondary school between Río Real and the Hospital Costa del Sol will help ease demand elsewhere in the town

Marbella town hall is set to offer up a plot of land in the Las Chapas area of the town to the Junta de Andalucía for the creation of a new school, as confirmed on Tuesday by the Education councillor, Carmen Díaz.

The council will offer up a plot of almost 12,000 metres, located between Río Real and the Hospital Costa del Sol. The regional government will therefore be able to include this in its 2018 budget.

The new secondary school would immediately serve pupils from Trapiche Norte, which has two primary schools - Colegio Mario Vargas Llosa and Colegio Xarblanca - neither of which have corresponding secondary schools, thus making a new facility “essential”, according to the town council.
