A special school in Biggleswade has had a major restructure as it works towards becoming a centre of excellence.
Ivel Valley School, which is located across two sites in Biggleswade, was previously set up as a primary school off The Baulk and a secondary school in Hitchmead Road.
The Baulk site has now become Ivel Valley College, with Hitchmead Road accommodating the school.
Principal Joe Creswick said: “Following a ‘good’ Ofsted rating in May this year, we continue to strive towards becoming a centre of excellence.
“I am extremely proud of the progress we have made as a school and look forward building on the links we already have with the local community.”
