A further 50 schools have been confirmed for the second round of the Prime Minister’s rebuilding programme.

The 50 schools included in this round include primary, secondary and special and alternative provision schools. New school buildings will be net-zero carbon in operation, helping meet the Government’s net zero target.

The Department for Education is also launching a consultation to gather views on how to prioritise schools for the remainder of the programme.

Education secretary, Gavin Williamson said: 'This programme will give thousands more young people the chance to learn in world class school facilities, levelling up opportunity and making sure every young person has the chance to succeed, progress and fulfil their potential.

'As we build back better after the pandemic, with buildings that are net-zero in operation, this major ten-year rebuilding programme will help to shape the education of not only children now, but for years to come.'

The School Rebuilding Programme is due to deliver 500 rebuilding projects over the next decade.
