WEST Craven High School has marked the last leg of its £6.2 million refurbishment by announcing the addition of a student common room.

The room, due to be finished in September, will be available to Year 11s at the school in Barnoldswick.

Construction giant Keepmoat, which began the renovation of West Craven High in October 2012, has donated £1,000 to establish a common room as a ‘thank you’ to the pupils for their understanding during the building works.

Roy Barnes, who retired as deputy head last year but has remained at the school to oversee building work, said: “This is the biggest investment the school has ever seen and will bring West Craven into the 21st century.

“The school has been waiting for a common room for the last 16 years and now, thanks to Keepmoat, we can finally give our students a place to relax and study ahead of their GCSEs.”
