£143m for Blackpool schools

BLACKPOOL has secured £143m to invest in secondary schools across the town.

Education chiefs today confirmed Highfield Humanities College will be the first school to be completely rebuilt, followed by either Bispham or Beacon Hill while the rest will undergo "significant" or "minor" remodelling.

The windfall comes as the resort is welcomed into Wave Five of the Government's Building Schools for the Future (BSF) scheme.
