SCHOOLS have received millions of pounds to improve their classrooms.

Locks Heath Infant and Junior Schools, in Fareham, have been given £3.2m by Hampshire County Council as part of a major investment package.

The schools will use the money to replace temporary accommodation with permanent classrooms with two single-storey extensions to the infant school, and a four-classroom extension and a learning hub in the junior school.

The plans are part of a £147m county council scheme to create up to 8,000 new school places by 2016.
