The £15 million redevelopment of a Letchworth school is moving at a fast pace, with staff and students expected to move into their shiny new building ahead of schedule.

We are moving away from sending paper letters as much as possible,

Morning Talks are a wonderful way to start the day.......

“We are expecting to move into the new building over Christmas followed by the demolition of the existing buildings and relandscaping of the rest of the site.

We are an independent, forward-thinking School for children from 3-18 years.

The redevelopment plans were originally rejected by the North Herts District Council planning committee in 2014, but the decision was overturned by a planning inspectorate.
