Plans to rebuild a Hereford school at a cost of £22m have been approved.
The Hereford Academy in Redhill will get a new school building, sixth form, community centre and sports facilities.
Pupils will benefit from football, hockey and rugby pitches as well as a range of outdoor athletics facilities, including a jogging and fitness track.
John Burnett, of Herefordshire Council, said it was a "fantastic opportunity to give youngsters a first-class education in a school fit for the 21st century".
Starting life as Redhill School, the learning centre later became Haywood School and was put in special measures.
It later changed its name to Wyebridge Sports College, before becoming The Hereford Academy.
