Plans for a £10m revamp of a school in Berkshire have gone on show.

A number of improvements have already been made at Denefield Secondary School in Tilehurst, including re-roofing and upgrades made to the toilets.

But plans for a new science and technology block at the site, which dates back to the 1970s, went on show for parents and pupils earlier.

Funding has mainly come from the government, with contributions from West Berkshire council and the school.

It is hoped a planning application can be submitted shortly with building work starting next summer and completed by September 2012.

Head teacher Glyn Whiteford said: "Already, improvements to the existing buildings are contributing to raising standards.

"The building of the new science and technology block, the atrium, and other new facilities, will enable our students to achieve even higher academic standards over the next few years."
