The demolition of the old St Peter Port school is underway

A mechanical digger has begun tearing down the old St Peter Port School.

The Les Ozouets campus was built in the 1960s.

Specialist contractors have been removing asbestos, and now a mechanical digger is being used to break the building down.

The site should be levelled by mid-August, to allow a new Guernsey Institute to be constructed.

Institute Head Tracey McClean says the new campus will offer opportunity to many post 16 students:

"In three years time hopefully we will be moving into a brand-new building, so it will mean that we can increase our provision and opportunities on the island.

There's nothing like learning in the classroom and being with a group of peers and sharing ideas."
