Two schools in the region will benefit from a £67million Government scheme to fund repairs and expansion projects in schools across the country.

Schools in Suffolk and Essex will be among those to get a slice of the money, including Hadleigh High School and Hedingham School and Sixth Form.

Both schools will be given money for urgent roof repairs, with Hedingham being given half of the £100,000 needed to replace its sport and examination hall’s asbestos roof.

Helena Carter, bursar at Hedingham School, said the repairs were an important improvement.

“The sports hall was often too cold in winter and too warm in summer so it’s going to make a real difference,” she said.

Hadleigh High School has been granted £300,000 under the same scheme.

Both schools will carry out work over the summer once exams have finished.
