Design details of £10m Leeds primary school revealed

Details of a proposed new primary school in Leeds have been released by the city council.

The authority said the £10m facility at Richmond Hill Primary School would be energy efficient and include large classrooms and a multi-purpose hall.

The building is scheduled to open in September 2012, subject to planning permission.

The school will also have classrooms for teaching autistic children and a rugby-league pitch.

Councillor Jane Dowson, executive board member for learning at Leeds City Council, said: "These plans highlight our ambition to provide all children and young people with the best possible schools and education, wherever they live in Leeds."
