The group behind a new school says it will ask the community for name suggestions.

West Herts Community Free Schools Trust was given the green light last week to open the new school at the empty Jupiter Drive site in Highfield, Hemel Hempstead. The previous school there was controversially closed by county bosses in 2007.

The project is currently called Hemel Hempstead Community Free School but that is just a working title.

Under the plans a new school will opened in September 2014 to cater for the increasing number of children needing places at reception entry level.

The trust, which already runs a school in Hatfield, will also consult on uniform and school hours.
