A special needs school in Starbeck has refurbished a former children’s centre over the road into two new sixth form classrooms.
The school has grown rapidly in recent years. It currently has 98 students — an increase of about 30 over the last six years.
Head teacher Sarah Edwards said she hoped the new classrooms would provide an opportunity for sixth formers to develop their independence skills.
“The building creates a high quality educational environment that will be used as classrooms for the really important independence and employment sixth form pathway.”

The listed building given to the school is next door to Starbeck war memorial on the High Street.
Springwater School is also seeking teachers and volunteers, including governors. Anyone interested can contact Ms Edwards at [email protected].
