A SCHOOL is to open its doors up for community use long after the bell has gone.

Whitburn Academy has enlisted the help of Schools Plus, an organisation set up to help schools work more effectively with their local communities, to run its after-hours community lettings. The multi-million pound school, in Rackley Way, Whitburn, was rebuilt in 2009.

David Taylor, deputy headteacher, said: “We are very lucky to have such fantastic facilities on site and it seems only fitting to let the community share them outside of school hours.”

The facilities are ideal for sport, business meetings, drama and dance groups, religious events, parties and summer schools.
