Display boards are travelling between Alderman Swindell and North Denes primary schools showing various views of the new two-storey building set to replace both schools.

The plans show a rectangular block enclosed by a 2.4m high perimeter fence.

Inside the layout reveals a mix of classrooms, unisex toilets, and a ‘heart space/library.’
