A GROUND-breaking ceremony has marked the start of construction work at The Grange School in Runcorn.

Pupils, school staff, Halton Borough Council staff and councillors attended the event.

The new school will combine the existing infant, junior and senior schools under one roof.

The rebuild will cost an estimated £35.3m and will be funded by public finance initiative credits – a kind of private sector loan that is repaid with public cash.

The redevelopment is part of the multi-million pound Building Schools for the Future (BSF) project in Halton.

Construction work will begin at Wade Deacon, Widnes, in September.

A public-private group, Halton Transformational Partnership, has been formed to develop the BSF projects.

The group includes Galliford Try, Vinci and Hochtief PPP Solutions, Halton Council and the two schools.

David Stanley, The Grange School executive headteacher, said: “We are delighted that work is beginning on our fantastic new building which has been carefully designed to house our recently-formed all through school.

“It will have separate, dedicated areas for primary and secondary pupils with specialist facilities available to all ages.â€￾

Cllr John Swain (children and young people) said: “It is a great day for the school and the community that work has started on the site.â€￾

spotted this one day coming across the bridge and decided to give it a closer look ,it looked quite high from the distance but not that big up close prob about 70/80ft? with a very long jib....or a baby as there called

met up with bigjobs at asda car park and off we went, initially it was hard to locate this crane as it wasnt lit up but bigjobs soon put an end to that when he pulled the car over and politally asked a lady out walking her dog

"excuse me love we have come to fix a crane...do you know if theres any cranes around here"

she gave us our exact directions and off we went lol
