A Welwyn Garden City primary school is set to expand as county bosses look at the future of education in the borough.
Holwell Primary School, Holwell Road, will permanently increase its intake from one form of 30 pupils to two per year, from September 2015.
A governors’ spokeswoman said: “This is an exciting opportunity to secure the future of Holwell School.”
County councillors agreed the proposals last week.
A seven week public consultation started on Thursday.
