Construction of Eden Park High School’s permanent site on Balmoral Avenue has been given the go ahead by Bromley Council.
The Education of the 21st Century (E21C) Trust, which runs the school, was granted permission to begin building works at the council’s plans sub-committee meeting on February 22.
Construction of the school, which will house 1,600 pupils, is expected to begin this month. This means the school, which opened in temporary accommodation at The Ravensbourne School in Hayes Lane last year, will move on its permanent site in time for autumn term, September 2019.
The plans for the Beckenham school include sport facilities, featuring a four-court sports hall, spectator galleries, glass-fronted gym, 3G all-weather flood lit pitch and a multi-use games area.
The site will also house a kiln room, dark room, habitat garden and outdoor STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) learning zone with a wetland centre and an amphitheatre.
Emily Codling, headteacher at Eden Park High School, said: “It’s a fantastic outcome. It means we can now start the incredible transformation of our school site on Balmoral Avenue. The team at Eden Park High School can’t wait to see the innovative plans come to life as construction begins. It really is going to provide the best learning environment for our students, who are equally as excited to move to our permanent site.”
