NECEA designs to go on show

greenford high schoolDetailed designs for North Greenford’s new high school are to be shown at a public exhibition.

The new school – the North Ealing Church of England Academy – is planned for the former GlaxoSmithKline Sports and Social Club grounds on Oldfield Lane North. It is scheduled to open in September 2013, subject to planning permission, and will be run by the Twyford Church of England High School and the London Diocesan Board for Schools.

When full, it will have places for 1200 11 to 16 year olds, a sixth form with places for 250 students and a centre for children with special educational needs. Under current proposals, the local community will also be able to use the school’s facilities including its full-sized sports pitches, flood-lit hard playing surfaces, indoor sports hall and activity studio.

Kier have been awarded the £18m contract to build the school through the academies framework.

The exhibition will take place in the existing building on the GlaxoSmithKline site on Oldfield Lane North, on Wednesday May 9.

Alice Hudson, Executive Headteacher, said: “I’m delighted to be able to go public on an imaginative design which responds so well to the features of the site. The building will look out onto the extensive playing fields and the trees making it very open to the community and wider world – this fits perfectly with the ethos we aim to create”
