Staff and pupils at Almond Hill Primary School in Stevenage have been celebrating their new building reaching its highest point.
The new build includes a two-storey, six classroom block which allows for the permanent expansion of the school. It will accommodate up to 360 new pupils and enable Almond Hill Primary School to offer places to Stevenage children.
The funding has come from Hertfordshire County Council which has allocated £100 million to expand the county’s primary schools in line with growing need.
Headteacher, Jude Lovelock, said: “It has been incredibly exciting watching the new structure take shape over the year.
“Our impressive new building and the facilities it offers will be a great additional asset to our current learning environment.
