Becket Keys Church of England School, in Sawyer’s Hall Lane, has been open a year, and from September will take in 150 new students and 10 new teachers.
The site was formerly home to Sawyer’s Hall College, which closed in August 2012, and Becket Keys has been occupying part of the building.
To make way for more students the school will be occupying more of the building, and will the revamp will include classrooms, music studios, science labs, library and main hall.
