Two schools in Deeping St James will be more attractive to future students after winning a slice of about £2 billion of Government cash.

Linchfield Community Primary School and The Deepings School are among 277 schools across England, just three in Lincolnshire. to secure money from the Department of Education’s Priority School Building Programme.

At least £250,000 will go to Linchfield to replace three mobile classrooms and The Deepings School is to get at least £500,000 towards a new design and technology building.

Headteacher Richard Trow said: “We are delighted that our students and staff will have a state-of-the-art facility in which to learn and teach.

“The students will be involved in designing it and we are really pleased that its quality will match the quality of teaching here.”

Primary school headteacher Andy Fawkes said: “We have been raising the bar here constantly and the school has improved a lot in a very short space of time, so the school is over the moon about the new building.”
