Building work on academies can start due to extra funds

Have your say

Vital building work on 78 academies and sixth-form colleges across Yorkshire and the Humber can now commence thanks to funding announced by Education Secretary Nicky Morgan.

The £24.8 million will go towards building improvements and school expansion projects, allowing schools to upgrade their facilities and create extra places where this is most needed.

The funding comes from the Government’s Condition Improvement Fund for 2016–17.
