A Potters Bar school have been left frustrated after the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the construction and opening of their new sports hall.
Mount Grace School’s state of the art facility was set to open this week following the demolition of the old girl's gym in January this year.
Construction on the sports hall started during lockdown and progress was being made, but the pandemic has led to a shortage of building materials which has delayed the opening until next Easter.
“I would like to extend her thanks to the developers, Cadman and also the Department for Education, who have worked tirelessly to keep the project on track,” said headteacher, Nancy Simpson.
“Unfortunately, the delays have been beyond their control and they remain extremely committed to driving the project through to fruition.
