  • Farmors School - £125,000 to improve the school facilities
  • Rednock School - £285,000  to improve sports facilities
  • Mitton Manor Pre School - £8,000 to improve the outdoor play area

Cllr Lynden Stowe, cabinet member for economy, skills and growth at Gloucestershire County Council, said: “Young people deserve to have access to good and outstanding school places close to their home, which have the best possible facilities.

“To make sure that becomes a reality, we promised to invest £100 million in our county’s schools. This extra funding is just another step towards that promise.

“We are fully committed to making sure young people in Gloucestershire have a positive learning experience and improving their learning environment is one way we can do that.”
