Youngsters at Broomhill Junior will be climbing aboard a double-decker bus for lessons soon in a new initiative at the forward-thinking school.

With the Broomhill Road venue growing in popularity and pupil numbers, a shortage of space has led to the idea of adding extra learning space in the shape of the bus.

“I looked at mobile classrooms to meet the demand for extra space but they were so ugly,” said headteacher Andrew Beckinsale-Yates. “I then came up with the idea of a bus and when I mentioned it to the staff and pupils they became really excited at the prospect.”
