A Gidea Park school's major renovation works, which took place throughout both lockdowns, have finished in time for the pupils' return from the summer holidays.  

Works to renovate the main Grade II-listed building at Royal Liberty School, which caters to boys aged between 11 to 16 in Gidea Park, cost an “extensive amount”, according to a spokesperson.

Beginning in March 2019, the works have now been completed.

This comes as the school recently celebrated its centenary.

Headteacher April Saunders said: “We are delighted to be back in our fully refurbished Grade II-listed building.  

“Our main school building has undergone a complete refurbishment whilst retaining the character and features of our historic building.
