A school in Bestwood is to be rebuilt following a £5m investment from Nottinghamshire County Council.
Bestwood Village Hawthorne Primary School is to be expanded to meet the ever-growing needs of the village which has seen a significant amount of housebuilding in recent years.
The school is currently based on two sites but the proposed new school would be on a single site for 315 pupils with the land capacity to expand to at least a 420 pupil capacity should the proposed house building come to fruition.
Leader of Nottinghamshire County Council, Coun Alan Rhodes said: “I am delighted to announce today that Bestwood Village Hawthorne Primary will be rebuilt on an expanded site to ensure that families living in the village can send their children to a local school.
“Our plans for on-going and increased investment in our schools is helping to transform the learning environment for thousands of our children and the benefits are obvious with 90% of children and young people in Nottinghamshire attending a Good or Outstanding school.”
