Construction work on a new Isle of Man secondary school, including the installation of new school fencing, is on time, according to education officials.

The £33.8 million project will be finished ahead of its planned opening in September next year, bringing the total number of school children at Bemahague to 800.

Lower school students in years seven and eight from St Ninian's High School will be able to use the facilities when they are launched, reports

The news provider quotes education and children minister Eddie Teare as saying that the centre will be complete within the original time plan.

"Work is on schedule. We will be in there ready to teach in September next year," he said.

"Once this happens there will be significantly less pressure on the sports, drama, science and art facilities in the upper school, facilities which repeatedly support St Ninian's in achieving good standards."

School fencing could also be needed in Hull after building firm Morgan Sindall was given contracts worth £65 million to construct new buildings.
