PLANS for the re-development of The Thomas Clarkson Community College go on display later this month.

The Wisbech school is one of the first in the county to benefit from the Government's Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme, which will see all 3,500 secondary schools in England re-built or substantially re-furbished over the next 15 years.

£55 million is being spent on re-developing both Thomas Clarkson and the Neale Wade Community College in March.

Alan Kippax, BSF Project Director at Cambridgeshire County Council said: "Some really good proposals have been developed for these two schools.

"I hope people will come along to the exhibitions to see for themselves the exciting future which awaits the next generation of secondary school students in March and Wisbech."

Members of the public are welcome on Monday 29 June between 5pm and 8.30pm.

Two consortia - Equitix Learning Partnerhips and Inspiredspaces [Carillion] are currently bidding to become the county council's partner for BSF across the whole of Cambridgeshire.

The preferred bidder will be appointed later in 2009. Construction work is due to start on site in Spring 2010.
