The latest phase in the construction of Grantham’s Priory Ruskin Academy, in Rushcliffe Road, has just been completed.

On March 14, the student council, members of staff and coun Ray Wootten visited the construction site for the new building.

A spokesman said: “As part of the process of engaging the students with the new build they were asked to sign the first length of steel that had been put in place.”

The academy is currently split between two sites but once the £13.5 million school has been constructed it will be on one site, accommodating around 1,200 pupils.

The build had originally been scheduled for completion by September this year but was delayed until February 2014 due to planning issues between the school and neighbours.
