A secondary school will open its doors to students at its new site in Croxley Green.

Croxley Danes School has announced it will open in its new permanent site in Baldwins Lane at the start of the summer term in 2020.

Department for Education (DfE) has said the school will move from Tolpits Lane at the end of the Easter term.

Students will then be able to start in the summer term on April 20 at the new 33-acre site.

There will be 480 students transferring from the current site, with this number increasing to 660 in September 2020. When at full capacity in 2024, the school will be able to hold 1,206 students.

The new school will have large spaces including an activities studio, learning resource centre, sports hall, assembly hall, drama studio and a sixth form study.

Head teacher Stephen Thompson said: “We are delighted to inform the parents and students who have supported the school on its journey so far and look forward to welcoming them to the new site.”

Dr Josephine Valentine, CEO of the Danes Educational Trust, said “I would like to pay tribute to the hard work of all those who have contributed to the considerable planning and preparation which goes into building a new school: the team at Croxley Danes, the Education and Skills Funding Agency, the Department for Education, Hertfordshire County Council and all the local schools, parents, local councillors and our two local MPs Richard Harrington and David Gauke.”
