Eden Park High School: What the site will look like

Eden Park High School (EPHS) has released images of what its permanent school site on Balmoral Avenue will look like when completed.

Construction is scheduled to begin by January 2018 at the latest with completion due in mid-2019. EPHS’s current Year 7s will make the move across to the new site within their first year.

The plans for the 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.

On Thursday, 31 August, the school officially greeted its very first students at their newly-built classrooms at EPHS’s temporary site at The Ravensbourne School – which is also part of the Education of the 21st Century (E21C) Trust.

Paul Murphy, CEO of E21C, said: “Establishing a family of academies, all championing the trust’s principles and values is our commitment to young people across Bromley and Kent, as well as creating much-needed school places.

“We’re delighted with how the construction for Eden Park High School is progressing, and are looking forward to seeing the students and school flourish in the future.”
