Chelmsford school, Chelmer Valley High School is set to receive £3.3 million input.
In the midst of the current austere financial climate and so much doom and gloom, it's nice to hear positive news about public funding being used locally.
Chelmer Valley High School will be getting a £3.3 million improvement programme.
The money will fund additional buildings and improvements to current buildings.
The improvements are thought to include a brand new sixth form, a performing arts centre, a new technology building and improvements to the PE facilities.
The improvement programme comes following the decision to close St. Peters College in August 2011, enabling Chelmer Valley High School to provide for increased pupil numbers.
The work is set to begin at the end of this month and is aimed for completion by October half term.
