The first 3D images of what a new west Norfolk specialist academy could look like have been revealed.
Norfolk County Council is funding the development of the school for children with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties in the west of the county, at Bryggen Road on the North Lynn industrial estate.
The new all-through school will provide day provision for 96 boys and girls aged between four and 16, with 56 places for primary school children and 40 secondary. The aim is to support children and young people into mainstream education.
It is hoped the building project will be completed in time for it to formally open in the 2016/17 school year.
James Joyce, chairman of the children's services, said: 'This school is crucial to young people in the west of the county who have special educational needs and require targeted and appropriate support to ensure they are receiving the excellent education they deserve.

'At the moment many of these students have to travel long distances to school. This isn't what is best for them because it is valuable time spent away from their families and communities.'
A drop-in session will be held for those interested in the plans at the Professional Development Centre in Kilham's Way between 2pm and 7pm on Monday, September 14. Parents, residents and local businesses will be able to look at the 3D images, comment on the proposals and find out more about the new school.
