An educational centre which supports children who struggle to cope in mainstream education is moving to a much more suitable location.
Following a six week consultation the Stevenage Education Support Centre will move to a currently vacant site in Collenswood Road, Stevenage.
David Williams is one of the councillors responsible for education at Herts County Council.
He said: “The proposed new site and building offers a positive opportunity for the Stevenage ESC to continue its work with young people, with the existing staff and resources transferring to the more spacious site.”
The site used to be part of Barnwell School and will be a big improvement on the centre’s cramped conditions at its current Chells Way base.

It supports children in Year 7, 8 and 9 who have been excluded or are at risk of being excluded from school to continue with their education.
The number of children it supports fluctuates widely depending on referrals and can rise up to a maximum of 12.
