The project to create a new secondary school for 840 pupils was procured through the Education Funding Agency (EFA) framework.
The site, close to Maple Cross, provides a permanent home for the school, which is currently based at Wolsey Business Park. The plans include investment in local highways infrastructure, including on-site parking spaces, new walking routes and safe crossing points.
Chris Tredget, managing director of Willmott Dixon in the northern Home Counties, said, “We are delighted to be creating another cutting-edge school in our region, generating much needed school places and a first class learning environment for students.”
The contractor recently built Hertswood Academy in nearby Borehamwood.
