Work under way on £2m scheme for Littleover Community School classrooms
WORK has started on a £2 million project to extend a secondary school in Derby.
Ten new classrooms will be created at Littleover Community School, in Pastures Hill.
The scheme will provide a two-floor extension to the sixth-form teaching block to create the additional classrooms and also two common rooms – one on each floor.
The contractor for the scheme, Clegg Construction, has worked on similar developments in the past, most prominently at Carlton Le Willows School in Gedling, Nottinghamshire.

But the Littleover project is the first school construction project on which Clegg Construction has worked in Derby.
David Knifton, business development manager at Clegg Construction, said: "This is a very exciting project.
"It's a great opportunity for Clegg Construction to expand its skills and expertise to school projects in the Derby area.
We're working on many schemes at the moment in and around Derby but it's great to be part of improving the city's educational facilities.
"The project is the first phase of a planned larger expansion programme to improve the school's teaching facilities for new and existing students."
Work on the extension to Littleover Community School's sixth form teaching block is due to be completed in August.
It will open to students and staff at the start of this year's autumn term.
