A THROUGH AGE free school is undergoing a multi-million-pound expansion as it plans to start taking on pupils at both primary and secondary school age from next year.

The Temple Learning Academy has been up and running for just over a year and has just taken on its second cohort of reception age pupils.

The school in East Leeds has 60 reception places each year, which will fill its primary phase, and also aims to take on 120 year seven secondary school pupils from September 2017.

The school opened last year on the site of the former East Leeds Leisure Centre. Work on creating an extension is now under way.
