A flourishing new Slough school has had an extraordinary birth - after being built in Ireland and transported in chunks to its final site in Stoke Road.
The story of the newly opened Lynch Hill Enterprise Academy started six years ago.
The existing Lynch Hill Primary School in Slough won government funding to build a new secondary school to meet the growing need in the town.
The £23million project was put in the hands of the McAvoy Construction Company in Ireland after a decision was made to go for a modular building.
This meant creating a building of steel frames in Ireland and transporting it to Slough in 10 to 20m by 7m sections over a 70 week period.
In the end the extraordinary operation was completed in just 53 weeks.
The new Lynch Hill Enterprise Academy finally moved into its new modular home this March, after six months in temporary accommodation nearby.
Proud headteacher Jane Everton said: "This has been the largest construction of a modular building in the UK. 
"Other schools have been built like this but on a smaller scale.
"This is as permanent as any standard building. There is nothing quirky about it."
It is the product of a combined operation between McAvoy, the
construction managers Mace and architects Blue Sky - three storeys high and build around a steel structure on concrete with a plywood exterior.
Acoustic panels on the walls and carpeting have eliminated the tinny buzz of voices that most schools have, creating a quiet, restful atmosphere.
The school is kitted out in colours of purple, light green, blue and grey - one for each educational area. Even the lockers follow the colour scheme
The new head means business. After seven years as a deputy head in Bucks Mrs Everton said: "I saw it as very unique opportunity to build something from the very beginning - with its own team, its own character and ethos.
"We have got a new school that wants to create rounded individuals."
Special Tuesday afternoon sessions allow children to try subjects outside the normal curriculum like Japanese or cooking.
There are regular trips - everywhere from BA to Brunel University and the First World War site of Ypres.
The school is participating in the UK Maths Challenge 
It has 240 pupils and this will expand to more than 400 when a new intake of 180 arrives in September.
