Visiting a primary school in St Albans will be more pleasant from now on after a new entrance was built to provide a more welcoming, and safer, environment.

St Albans Mayor Cllr Annie Brewster has officially opened Windermere Primary School’s new entrance on Windermere Avenue.

A spokeswoman said the new foyer had been designed to reflect the needs of the school in the 21st Century, as it was built in 1957.

It was one of a number of refurbishment projects carried out recently to bring Windermere “up-to-date”.

The spokeswoman said the original entrance opened straight onto the dining room, and people had to walk through that room to access the school office.

Now, visitors can go straight to the office via a “smart new entrance lobby without going through the dining room”.
