St Albans schools will benefit from a £14 billion investment in education around the country.
Following an announcement from Prime Minister Boris Johnson, primary and secondary schools are set to receive a large cash boost from the government to improve the standard of education.
The £14 billion is a result of Johnson's promise to 'level up' education funding.
