THE completion of an £11.8 million development will mean a school will welcome 200 more students this term.

Building at Gildredge House Free School in Eastbourne has been completed after a year and a half of work.

This has included the demolition of single-storey buildings, erection of a sports hall, a new performance space and a three-storey extension.

The school will open its sixth form in September 2015 and be up to its full capacity of 1,232 by 2019.
