Norfolk County Council has submitted its designs for the new specialist school to be built on the former Fakenham Sixth Form playing field, which has not been used in 20 years.

The school would cater for up to 100 children and young people with autism in north Norfolk as well as creating up to 55 new jobs.

The new school would provide 16 general classrooms, three specialist classrooms and group rooms for the students, as well as the main hall, dining hall, kitchen and staff accommodation.

The plans for the new school are part of a £120m plan to transform special needs education across the county.
