A Welwyn Garden City secondary school will use Department of Education funds to build a new two-story teaching block, subject to planning approval.

Monk’s Walk School in Knightsfield has applied to Welwyn Hatfield Council to demolish a single-story building, along with minor garages, and construct the new teaching block on an existing tennis court.

The plan also proposes creating three new hard-surface tennis courts on the site of the demolished building.

None of the other teaching blocks will be affected by the development and will remain in operation during construction.

Monk’s Walk successfully applied for a grant through a government fund for the redevelopment of schools nationally.

The Department of Education has appointed a contractor and design team to obtain planning permission and deliver the project.
