A disused care home in Lincoln is to be turned into a place of learning after it was bought up by a private school last week.
Eastgate House was closed in January, but Lincoln Minster School has stepped in and bought the property as part of its development plans. The historic building will be made into a fifth boarding house for the school, which wants to attract pupils from around the world.
Principal Clive Rickart said: "The intention is to open our doors worldwide. An English education is seen as the gold standard in many countries and we are so passionate about what we do here to give youngsters life-changing opportunities, we are keen to offer it more widely."
The youngsters should be able to move into their new lodgings by September. IB.
