Several schools in North Yorkshire are going to benefit from building projects and refurbishment work.

A major investment programme has been announced as part of the Government's commitment to ensuring that all children have access to the best possible schools and facilities.

Across the country, £23 billion will be invested in the school estate between 2016 and 2021.

Education Secretary Nicky Morgan said: "Every child should be taught in surroundings which allow them to fulfil their potential, and we have made significant investments in school buildings to ensure this happens.

"The latest funding from the Condition Improvement Fund will help us to build on our progress, so that even more pupils and teachers have access to safe, high-quality classrooms."

  • Harrogate Grammar School - replacement teaching block
  • Rossett School, Harrogate - three-classroom expansion bid and roof replacement (phase two of three)
  • New Park Community Primary School, Harrogate - roof refurbishment works
  • Western Primary School, Harrogate - safeguarding improvements to school entrance
