Major plans for this King's Lynn school have been given the green light.

It means that St Edmund's Academy will move from its current site to Greenpark Avenue.

The current school will move to a new two-storey building, with a new nursery, modern classrooms, hall and sports facilities.

The new 420-place school, known as Greenpark Academy, will have modern classrooms and sporting facilities and there will also be 56-place on site nursery.

Cllr Stuart Dark, Chairman of the Children's Services Committee at Norfolk County Council, said:

"The vast majority of Norfolk's schools are good or outstanding and we believe that Norfolk's children and teachers deserve the very best.

That's why we are investing more than £100m in new and improved mainstream school buildings in the county and £120m in specialist places, creating state of the art classrooms for many hundreds of Norfolk's children.

St Edmund's is at the heart of a growing community and I am sure that many generations of children will benefit from this fantastic new building."



The current St Edmund's, on Kilham's Way, has 402 pupils and has been growing as a result of the new housing development in the Marsh Lane and Lynnsport areas.

Lisa Cook is in charge of the trust that runs the school:

"It'll make a huge difference to us because we are isolated by a main road, our children come under the underpass or cross at the lights.

There isn't a designated crossing area so it can be dangerous and the underpass isn't enjoyed by many people.

The main reason for us is we will be within our community and not seperated by a main road, that's certainly the driving force by the local authority and it's certainly a main reason for us is to be part of the local community."
