Work continues on Blackpool's newest school

Blackpool's new multi million pound school Armfield Academy is taking shape on Lytham Road.

Now kids are already getting to grips with their new classrooms in the converted Arnold Junior School building across the road.

When it's officially handed over later this year, the new three storey building will be the main teaching block.

However three main buildings from Arnold School have been retained and refurbished to a very high standard. 

They include the Sports Hall, the Design centre and the Memorial Hall which will become the Armfield Memorial Hall in memory of Blackpool's famous son Jimmy Armfield who died a year ago.

Andy Mitchell has been chatting to John Topping from Fylde Coast Academy Trust.
