STUDENTS will soon be enjoying state-of-the-art sports facilities as work got under way on a new sports hall.
Builders have started work on phase one of Bassingbourn Village College's development which will include a sports hall, all-weather training pitch and car parking.
The sports centre will also be used by Bassingbourn Primary School and the community.
Head teacher Scott Hudson said: "This is obviously an exciting time and the building of these new facilities creates a range of opportunities not only for students of the college but also for the community."

The facilities will allow staff to incorporate a range of sports including badminton, basketball and football on four marked courts, and they will be able to teach dance and gymnastics in the multi-purpose area.
Mr Hudson said that the college's sporting possibilities would be endless.

Year 8 pupil Connie Burdge said: "We are really excited about the new sports hall. There will be a lot more facilities to use."
Robert Dyke, also of Year 8, said: "It's going to be good."
The second phase of the development will see the conversion of the existing gym and changing rooms.
The college hopes the all-weather training pitch will be completed in time for the new school year and that the sports hall will be completed by Christmas.
