We’re delighted to announce that the construction for Eden Park High School has officially begun!
Following Bromley’s Council’s decision to approve construction of Eden Park High School at the Council’s Plans Sub-Committee meeting on the 22nd February, the laying of the groundwork in preparation for construction is underway in Balmoral Road, Beckenham. With multiple diggers and an experienced building crew on-site since April, the school is on track for its planned opening in September 2019.
Having officially welcomed its first intake at its temporary site at The Ravensbourne School in Hayes Lane last year, both students and staff are looking forward to making the move to the permanent site in just under 18 months’ time.
“It’s incredibly rewarding to see several years of dedicated campaigning and perseverance finally pay off, as the building work for Eden Park High School begins,” says Head Teacher, Emily Codling, “It’s the culmination of a lot of hard work from local parents, local people and the E21C Trust, all of whom are delighted with the plans for the school and the progress so far.”
The new school, which operates extended hours, is helping alleviate a chronic shortage of secondary school provision in the Borough, ultimately providing 1,600 places for local students.
