Works starts soon on new pounds 21m city school.

WORK to build a pounds 21m super school in Liverpool begins next month.

Liverpool council's executive board gave the green light for contractor Morgan Ashurst to start refurbishing Walton's ageing Alsop high school.

Work on the 1,700-pupil school is the first under the pounds 400m Building Schools For The Future programme which will rebuild or refurbish 30 Liverpool secondaries.

Features will include flexible classrooms with retractable walls, a new canteen and a dance studio.

The landmark building, which dates back to 1926, will also be extensively refurbished to improve science and maths facilities.

The new school is due to open in autumn 2010.
