A MILLION-pound roof and window repair scheme at a Highbridge school has been completed on time and on budget.

The two-year project at The King Alfred School Academy (TKASA) covers a huge part of the campus, including A Block, the sports hall and 1610 building.

Acting principal Dan Milford said: “We are so excited to see the latest improvements to our impressive site.

"We continually want to ensure our students have a superb campus with excellent facilities and welcoming art work."

The projects were finished off with impressive signage and art made in the usual The Priory Learning Trust (TPLT) style.

The major works were funded through grants since TKASA became an academy and joined TPLT.

TPLT has a strong track record of improving both school sites and standards.

New skylights and windows have also been installed throughout the roof works.

Neville Coles, chief executive of TPLT, said: “This is tremendous news.

"We are passionate to help the education and life chances of students, and making the school sites outstanding for the community is part of our culture.

"The funding we received is largely thanks to the strong team we have at The Priory Learning Trust in winning awards, with hard work and skill."
