Essex County Council unveil plans for new school to be built on site of abandoned Alderman Blaxill
The spirit of Alderman Blaxill School looks set to live on after plans to build a new multi million pound school on the same site were officially unveiled yesterday.
County Hall education bosses hope to build the new secondary school to replace the former Paxman Avenue school.
The school closed in 2014 as a result of dwindling pupil numbers and is now expected to be demolished before the end of the year.
But the fresh plans have now been finalised and were put on display to the public during a consultation event held yesterday in the nearby St Cedd’s Hall, in Iceni Way.
