Work to build a multi-million-pound science and technology block at a village school has begun.
Contractors have started work at Churchill Academy to create the £3.9million facility – which will include 12 laboratories and two food technology classrooms.
Headteacher Chris Hildrew said the development, which is due to be completed in December 2018, ‘will provide students with the state-of-the-art facilities they deserve’.
H Mealing and Sons was awarded the contract to complete the project.
Its operations manager, Laurence Wright, said: “We are thrilled to support Churchill in realising their vision for the best learning environment for their students.”
The building is the second new facility the school has commissioned in the past year.
It recently opened the Alan Turing Business, Computing and Social Science Block as part of a wider project to decommission some of the 60-year-old buildings still in use at the school.
