New school embodies North East's past and future

There are plans to open a new kind of school on Tyneside to train future engineers and technicians.

Work has already begun on site next to the Discovery Museum in Newcastle.

From September the Discovery School will open its doors to the first 360 pupils who have secured a place.

The school aims to offer 720 places for 14 to 19 year olds.
