A £3.5m extension which has enabled a West Norfolk Catholic primary school to double in size from 210 to 420 places, has been blessed by the Bishop of East Anglia the Rt Rev Alan Hopes.

The expansion at St Martha's primary school near Holy Family Church, in Gaywood, King's Lynn, provides the school with eight new classrooms, a sports hall, a new staff room and group rooms.

Headteacher, Aidan McGovern, said: 'We were very pleased to celebrate Mass with Bishop Alan at the beginning of a new school term. We combined this visit with a blessing of our new school extension and marked it with a food festival celebrating the wonderful diversity of our school. The children and adults tasted food from all over world lovingly prepared by the families of the children.'

The official opening will be on September 21, which coincides with the school's 60th anniversary.
