The head at a Hatfield school has voiced her delight after a multi-million pound revamp - which will see the existing building knocked down - was appproved.

A planning committee last week backed an application to demolish and rebuild Bishop’s Hatfield Girls’ School.

It is understood the development, which will include a sports hall and performing arts complex, will cost more than £10million.

The school, which currently has 680 pupils, will see its capacity increase to 900, with 98 staff in September 2016.

Head Theodora Nickson told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “It’s very exciting, a lot of parents have been telling me they’re looking forward to their daughters coming to a purpose built state-of-the-art school.”
