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 land was returned to the county council after the college moved into new sixth form facilities on Field Lane in September 2017.

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.
