An infant and a junior school in St Albans have joined forces to become a through-school.
Ss Alban and Stephen Infant School and Ss Alban and Stephen Junior School, in the Camp Road area, are now one Catholic primary school.
Plans to amalgamate the schools were agreed in January of last year after public consultation.
To mark the event, Fr Julian Davies and Fr Michael O’ Boy from Ss Alban and Stephen Parish blessed the new school on the staff on Wednesday September 2 as a symbol of coming together.
Executive headteacher Clare McFlynn said: “I hope this is a successful year for everyone, children, staff, parents and governors and that all members of our school community remain safe and well during this time. We look forward with great excitement as we start this new journey together as Ss Alban and Stephen Catholic Primary School.”
