SALE of the disused Swanmore Middle School, Ryde, is complete.
The sale of the fourth of the school sites made redundant by education reorganisation has been confirmed at £428,000.
Proceeds will contribute to the authority’s school capital investment programme.
The Isle of Wight Council obtained planning permission for 24 houses on the site — insisting a third should be affordable — before making the sale to the highest of two bidders.
A new school was constructed on part of Swanmore’s playing field, on the corner of Bettesworth and Ashey roads.
The old Swanmore school dates from 1940 and occupies an area of nearly two acres.
The council began marketing the site to attract a developer a year ago.
