Hull City Council has been given the greenlight to bring forward work on eight out of the 10 schools after the floods severely damaged many of its secondary schools.
The new schools will be built with raised floors to prevent future flood damage as more than 90 per cent of Hull lies on a flood plain.
The council managed to negotiate an accelerated programme with the Department of Education because of the severity of the flood damage.
The BSF programme will see three new academies built, three secondary schools rebuilt and four schools remodelled.
