Hertfordshire's Katherine Warington School to open on 'alternative site'

Building delays mean pupils will be bussed ten miles away for the first two weeks of term.

 

Children due to start at a new school in September will be bussed to another site nearly 10 miles away for the first two weeks as the building will not be ready.

 

The Katherine Warington School near Harpenden was due to open for the start of term on 5 September.

 

Instead, 180 Year 7 pupils will be taken by bus to the University of Hertfordshire's law school in Hatfield.

 

Hertfordshire County Council called the plan "disappointing".

 

The secondary academy is being built between Wheathampstead and Batford due to increased demand for school places.
