PLANS to extend a Crouch End school have been give the go-ahead - despite opposition from residents.
The council's planning department approved proposals to create two new blocks - a learning resource centre and administration facility - at Hornsey School for Girls.
The £4million development is part of Haringey's Building School for the Future initiative which will see more than £200million spent on improving schools in the borough.
Carol Jones, headteacher at the school, said: "The new resources and the quality of the design mean that the centre will have a significant positive effect on the students' learning and achievement."
