The Government has fast-tracked £580m of funding to improve school buildings across England.
The funding will be used to repair and upgrade school 580 academies, sixth form colleges and voluntary aided schools, as well as increasing school capacity at a small number of places.
The investment - announced by the prime minister last month - will be targeted at school buildings in the worst condition.
Education secretary Gavin Williamson said: 'We have worked at great speed to release this additional £560m of condition funding to schools for projects this year to kick-start the economy and transform the buildings so vital for excellent teaching.
'We have now allocated over £2bn this year to improve the condition of our school buildings, paving the way for our new transformative ten-year school building programme starting later this year with over £1bn funding for the first wave of 50 schools.'
