An environmental learning centre was due to be built at King Edward VI Humanities College, Spilsby, thanks to £500,000 from the Department for Children, Schools and Families.

The Lincolnshire Eco-barn had been planned at the college to coincide with the introduction of a new environmental and land-based diploma for students.

The diploma would teach students more about the importance of looking after the environment, wildlife, and agriculture and would be linked to an outdoor learning programme at the college.
