A two-classroom modular unit and a Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) is being built to enable the school to increase the intake of pupils.

The school currently has a capacity of 350 pupils, and this will increase to 420 once the additional classrooms have been built.

The investment is one of several schemes approved by Hull City Council to increase pupil places across the city. Around £50million of investment is taking place across Hull schools; the largest investment since Building Schools for the Future (BSF).

Councillor Shane McMurray, Portfolio Holder for children’s services said: “In response to the increase in the childhood population we’re working with schools to increase not just capacity and choice, but a choice based around quality provision. We want to provide the best education possible in the best learning environments possible.”

Joanne Leighton, Headteacher at Newington Academy said: We are delighted to have work on this exciting project begin. The addition of a two-classroom modular unit and a MUGA pitch will enable our school to grow and bring increased opportunities for sport and competition for both our children and the wider community.”

It is expected the works will be complete before the end of August, ready for use as schools return in September.
