The first students have walked through the doors of the new £24m All Saints' Academy in Cheltenham.

Sixth form and year seven students were the first to glimpse the state-of-the-art facilities on Wednesday, with more school years arriving later this week.

The academy is jointly sponsored by the Anglican diocese of Gloucester and the Catholic diocese of Clifton.

It offers 900 places for 11 to 16-year-olds and a 250-place sixth form. Teaching begins in full on Monday.
