Investment in improved facilities at the Marshland High School in West Walton will benefit more than just the school’s students, according to its headteacher Liz Dormor.
Bids for funding to improve the school’s swimming pool and a mobile classroom where science is taught have been selected to receive cash in the latest round of school building funding which was announced by the government this week.
Although the exact amount of money to be allocated is not yet known, Mrs Dormor said she was “delighted” the school had won the backing of the Priority Schools Building Programme.
Further surveys of the School Road site will now take place to determine just how much money is needed to complete the required works.
But Mrs Dormor said: “The school is thrilled to have been selected in this bid and hopes this will enhance facilities not only for our students, but also for the wider community who use the swimming pool.”
