A school for the deaf in Welwyn Garden City has had plans for a state-of-the-art indoor facility approved.

Knightsfield School can now go ahead with constructing the multi-purpose building, which will include two new classrooms for their 66 students.

"We are excited to announce that we have been granted planning permission for a new, state-of-the-art indoor facility that will serve as a multi-purpose area for sports, drama and music productions," read a statement from the school.

"This will also include two new classrooms and will meet the acoustic requirements necessary for optimal listening conditions for our students, as well as changing facilities, which we don’t currently have and indoor communal spaces.

"We currently have 66 students on roll, with the demand for places increasing with each school year.

"As the school continues to grow we strive to improve our practice and the lives of our students.

"Having a small multi-use hall, that is as acoustically built as possible, will boost the school’s spirit and with some added educational areas will ensure that all years are safe and can learn well.
