YOUNG musicians at Ashwell School will be able to benefit from the facilities on offer in the school's new extension.

Oliver Heald, MP for North East Herts, visited the school to cut the ribbon on the new building, which cost £1million.

Head teacher Cliff Jenkinson said: "We're very lucky to have this excellent new block of four classrooms and a music room.

"Because of all the development and population growth that has been going on in this area recently, our school has grown a lot, and we now have 10 classes instead of eight, which is the reason for this new building."

Mr Jenkinson believes the improved facilities will help enrich the school's already extensive music curriculum.

"We already have a full-time music teacher of our own, and other teachers who come into the school on a daily basis, so having the new music room will only benefit them and the pupils," he said.
