The £1.2m refurbishment of a Nottingham special school has been completed.

Woodlands School, in Aspley, has been given a new, larger reception area, an outdoor "tranquil space" and upgrades to its food technology department.

The old school hall has also been converted to include a sci fi-themed diner, common room and performance area.

The school caters for 59 pupils aged from four to 16 with a wide range of learning difficulties.

Head teacher Carol Barker said: "We are delighted with the transformation of our school in such a short space of time.

"The changes have improved the overall movement of pupils within the school and created some fantastic teaching and learning environments."
