Construction students at Ashby School are developing their building skills after a donation of bricks from Measham-based company Forterra plc.
Two packs of bricks were delivered to the school where they will be used by more than 80 students who are following the BTEC construction course from September.
Design teacher Chris Worth said: “We would not be able to build without these bricks so we are very grateful for the generous donation from Forterra. Each student will need about 100 bricks each to complete projects such as cavity walls and to perfect techniques like cutting and rolling and learning how to get things plumb.”
