Blackfen School for Girls will now be building new teaching accommodation to replace decades-old buildings that had been originally put up as temporary accommodation.

It will help finance the replacement of the three temporary buildings, one of which dates back to the 1970s.

As their conditions deteriorated the school was continually investing ever more money in patching them up.

The Condition Improvement Fund is available for schools and colleges to improve their buildings and create better environments for learners.
