MP Oliver Heald will officially open Ashwell School's new £1million extension tomorrow (Friday) afternoon.
Cliff Jenkinson, headteacher at the school, is looking forward to the event.
He said: "Our local communities are very fortunate that this wonderful extension, long overdue, is now open to provide the very best facilities for the children of the area."
The four-classroom block has been funded by Herts County Council, and designed by architect Pino Bonsignore.
A spokesman for the school added: "The new block provides excellent new facilities which will be enjoyed by all our pupils.
"We're also very lucky to have a music room, which is a real rarity for a primary school."
