Cara Brickwork secures the masonry package on the new Neston High School for Morgan Sindall

The new £25m school plans to replace Neston High School under a government programme to deal with schools most in need of urgent repair.

The new three-storey school, due to be completed in 2018, will be built on an existing artificial grass pitch.
Overall the new Neston High will provide for 1,750 students, up from 1,689, 400 of whom will be sixth formers.

A small increase in the 177 full-time equivalent staff is also provided for.

The overall size of the school will be reduced and the adjoining Neston Recreation Centre will continue to provide sports accommodation for the high school as well as for the community.
