West Midlands architects BBLB have secured planning permission for a new school in Rugby that was largely destroyed by fire in 2004.
Pupils at Avon Valley School have been living and working in a temporary village of mobile classrooms since 90 per cent of the school was burned down.
Plans for the new 1,100 pupil complex were drawn up with main contractor Miller Construction.
They take into account the fact that Avon Valley School is also a specialist performing arts college and now offers facilities for pupils to continue their education post 16 in the area.
Construction work is due to start next month and completion is scheduled for summer 2007.
Other recent education projects finished by BBLB include a new full-sized four-court sports hall at Walsall's Streetly School and a new performing arts building for Telford's Wrockwardine Wood School.
The practice has also recently been appointed by Solihull Council with Pettifer Construction to provide sports facilities at two schools, Alderbrook and Tudor Grange.
"We are delighted that we have been selected by Avon Valley to provide
their new school," said BBLB partner Simon Jones. "We have developed a fantastic working relationship with the governors, the county council and the district council and know that we will be able to deliver a school that we can all be proud of.
"We have established a reputation as one of the foremost designers of education projects in the Midlands and the fact that schools do invite us back again and again bears this out.
"We work closely with our clients in order to ensure that education briefs are met precisely and that projects are tailored to meet individual expectations."
Redditch-based BBLB is presently designing more than £350 million of developments throughout the Midlands.
They are the designers of the spectacular Orion building, alongside interior designer John Rocha, which is being developed by Crosby Homes and currently under construction in Birmingham city centre.
Other notable projects include the master planning of the 17 acre site which was formerly Banbury Cattle Market, the Eco Business Park in Ludlow, apartment development CV Central in Coventry and Albion Mill, Wolverhampton.
