Hertfordshire County Council is consulting on creating more school places in Hemel Hempstead

Published: 20 Feb 2018


Hertfordshire County Council is consulting on creating more primary school places to ensure that every child in Hertfordshire has a place at one of our great schools.

The places are to be created in response to anticipated growth in demand and would be available from September 2019.

The primary school being consulted on is Belswains in Hemel Hempstead.

The proposed expansion would provide an additional 30 school places.

The latest proposals come on top of the over £250m already approved since 2010 to provide over 19,000 additional permanent and temporary primary and secondary school places.

Terry Douris, Cabinet Member for Education, said: “We are committed to making sure that every child in Hertfordshire has a place at one of our great schools so they can reach their full potential. That means ensuring the right number of school places in the best location. We will continue to invest money to ensure that where the county’s population grows we build the appropriate infrastructure.”
