Hitchin school set for multi-million pound redevlopment

A SCHOOL is embarking on a multi-million pound redevelopment plan.

Hitchin’s Kingshott School wants to build new classrooms, changing rooms, a dining hall, kitchen, a gym and reception area.

It submitted a planning application to North Herts District Council (NHDC) earlier this month.

Jude Ilott, bursar at the school, said the school had worked “hard on the plans”, are was looking forward to the next step.

It is not the first time school has undergone redevelopment, having built its middle school four years ago and a new nursery in 2010.
