Free school reveals proposed site

The city centre site of a new free school in Norwich has been unveiled.

Jane Austen College will open in September next year in office buildings currently occupied by Aviva in Colegate.

The five-storey premises will include an auditorium for drama, library, music rooms and study areas for pupils.

Work will begin once Aviva has moved out in March.

The secondary school and sixth form will specialise in English and the humanities.

It will offer places to 180 pupils in Year 7 and 100 in the sixth form when it opens in 2014.
