Shepway District Council last night (11 January), approved plans to build a new 'super school' o­n land adjacent to the Channel School in Folkestone.

The recommendations will now be passed to Kent County Council for final approval.

The Folkestone Academy would be a new state school with a centre of excellence for the creative arts, European culture and languages.
