£14m Paxman Academy is set to be ready in 2019
A milestone has been reached in the construction of Colchester’s newest school.
The £14 million Paxman Academy is currently being built in Paxman Avenue, at the former Alderman Blaxill School site.
It is set to open in autumn 2019.
When complete, the new secondary school will provide 900 spaces for pupils.
The three-story building will have 20 classrooms, a library, a suite of science laboratories, technology workshops and a sports hall.
Outside there will be a new multi-use games area and grass sports pitches.
