Four schools will receive a share of a £435 million fund to help improve and expand their facilities.

Park High School, in Stanmore, St Bernadette's Primary School, in Clifton Road, Krishna Avanti Primary School, in Edgware and Canons High School, in Harrow, will all receive a share of government money.

The money will go towards 1,276 projects for 1,030 academies and sixth-form colleges.

Bob Blackman, MP for Harrow East said: “Harrow is home to some truly excellent schools and I am extremely pleased that these schools are being supported in their aspirations to expand and provide the best possible education for their pupils.

"We have a growing population locally and there is a strain on school places, so it is vital that the schools we do have are able to expand and improve their facilities as needed.

“I know this news will be extremely welcome to parents locally and I congratulate the schools and their teachers for their success.”
