There was excitement today as students and staff at Workington Academy moved into our brand new state-of-the-art building. Built as part of the Government’s Priority Schools Building Programme by Sir Robert McAlpine, the £16.5m structure, which has been constructed alongside the existing school, has space for 1200 students and includes two three storey wings and a two-storey section. The existing sports hall is to be refurbished and linked to the new building.
We featured on BBC Radio Cumbria throughout the day. Listen to the coverage here:
