A CONSTUCTION company has been chosen to build a £30million school in Nailsea.

Carillion Construction has been picked to build the new school on the Nailsea School site, in Mizzymead Road, and work is due to start in the summer.

The state-of-the-art building will accommodate 1,500 pupils and will be built near the existing school to minimise disruption.

Once the new school is up and running, the old building will be demolished.

"The design teams of Skanska (runners up) and Carillion have each developed outstanding designs working over much of the Christmas holidays on the last details.
