Work is set to start on a new multi-million pound school campus in Pembrokeshire.

The first phase of the £42.9m Pembroke Learning Campus will see a secondary school and autism centre built on the site of the current school.

Building work will start later this month, with an opening date of September 2018.

It comes as the contract was awarded to Bouygues UK, following Welsh Government approval of the plans.

Work will then carried out to demolish the old school, with all work due to be completed by May 2019.

'Delighted'

Pembroke School head teacher Frank Ciccotti said "The governors and staff are delighted that the contract has been issued and so the work on delivering phase one of the Pembroke Learning Campus is finally under way after four years of detailed planning."

The learning campus will accommodate pupils aged 11-18 along with 30 learners at the autism centre.
