A school, which has moved to a new £8million building on the Bicton College site, says it wants to be closely involved with its new community.
Mill Water School, which teaches children with severe learning difficulties, had its new location officially opened last week, following its move from Honiton.
Speaking at the opening, chairman of governors Patrick Roberts said that with the school now in a new part of East Devon, it wanted to become ‘an integral part of the community’, and that local people would be invited to the school to find out more about its work.
He also thanked Devon County Council (DCC) for its support during the previous delay in finding a new site.
The school, which has 90 pupils on roll, was officially opened by (DCC) chairman George Gribble.
