We are delighted that the planning permission for our permanent building on the site of the old Fire Station at West Silvertown was unanimously approved at Newham Planning Meeting on Tuesday 18th June 2019. We are very much looking forward to the enhanced facilities our permanent building will offer our students and the local community, including excellent sports, music and arts facilities.
We thank all parents and members of our community who submitted responses to the planning department in support of our building.
Demolition work has recently begun on the site at West Silvertown, a building contractor has been appointed and we will update you on timeframes for completion of the permanent building in due course.
This is excellent news for the whole academy community, and we look forward to having some of our students have the opportunity to visit the site to see the work commencing in the very near future.
We will provide you with a further update in the autumn term.
