Six Buckinghamshire schools get 80m for revamp

Six secondary schools in Buckinghamshire will be refurbished following an £80m grant from the government.

Furze Down School in Winslow will undergo a complete rebuild, with major revamps planned for five others, Buckinghamshire County Council said.

It made a successful bid for cash from Building Schools for the Future.

Marion Clayton, cabinet member for achievement and learning, said: "This is just the morale boost we needed."

Councillor Clayton added: "At last we can look forward to providing pupils and staff with learning environments they fully deserve."

Other schools to benefit are the The Grange and Mandeville School, both in Aylesbury; Chesham Park Community School; Burnham Upper and Buckingham Upper.
