Cambridgeshire: New Schools Cost Millions
Hundreds of youngsters in Cambridgeshire are going back to school today - and more tomorrow in brand new or refurbished schools across the county.
Tens of millions of pounds have been spent on new colleges and academies as head teachers welcome pupils to state-of-the art facilities in Peterborough, Cambourne and Cambridge.
In Peterborough, £52m has been spent bringing schools up to scratch. £24m has been spent by the city council rebuilding the Stanground Academy, with £15m creating a new Nene Park Academy in Orton Longueville.
The City of Peterborough Academy is on the site of what was the Hereward Community College - and opens after a £13m refit.
The North Cambridge Academy, formerly known as The Manor School opens today (Wednesday 4th September) at 8.45am, with pupils arriving to a school with a completely new image, uniform and processes.
Cambourne Village College, a brand new school (the first for about 40 years in Cambridge) will also open at 8.30am, welcoming its first cohort of Year 7 pupils to the school.
Ged Rae, head of the new Stanground Academy told Heart: "We believe this school will become outstanding, we will use our facilites to work with our students and our community to provide a school - an academy everyone will be proud of."
The first rail freight service from the UK to China has arrived.
