TWO schools in St Albans have started the new academic year afresh by merging into one.

Killigrew Infant and Junior Schools in Chiswell Green, have combined forces to become Killigrew Primary and Nursery school, an initiative launched by the governors.

The new school will be based at the same site in West Avenue, and there will be no significant changes to the pupils' lives. Head teacher Tracy Mylotte - who was head of the infant school for five years - said that the transition had been smooth, and there were only subtle differences for the children.

She added, "We have a new sign, but we won't be changing the uniform because ours is red with a dragon logo and we all love it."

Killigrew pupils had a party with a steel band last term to mark the end of the two separate schools. To welcome in the new school, a mural of all the children will be painted by a local artist, and there will be a music-making day culminating in a commemorative CD.
