A multi-million pound extension to help accommodate a growing sixth form at the Isle of Man's largest secondary school has been opened.

The £3.2m three-storey addition at Ballakermeen High School has been built to help accommodate more than 300 sixth form students.

The school was awarded the money from the government's capital fund after Tynwald voted in favour in 2013.

It includes four new classrooms, a larger dining room and tutorial space.
