Help Shape Ealing's New High School
Fill in survey and give your views on new secondary
Residents have until the end of May to help shape Ealing’s first new secondary school in 10 years.
Ealing Council is running a borough-wide consultation and people are being asked to comment on a range of issues including what specialism the new school should have, how the buildings should be designed and what kind of facilities should be provided for the local community.
The new school will be built on the old GlaxoSmithKline sports and social club ground on Oldfield Lane North in Greenford, subject to planning consent, and is part of Ealing’s £300 million Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme.
The new school is scheduled to open in September 2014. When full, it will provide 1,200 places for pupils aged 11 to 16, a 200 place 6th form and a Severe Learning Difficulties Unit for 12 pupils.
In addition to the consultation the council will also be setting up a small working group with local residents and other interested parties to discuss and assist in drawing up proposals on the new high school and how it can benefit the wider local area.
David Archibald, Executive Director Children and Families, said: “This consultation gives local residents an important opportunity to help shape the high school that will serve their communities from the very start and I encourage them to have their say.
“The new school is going to make a big difference to families in the north Greenford and Perivale areas and we want them, and anyone else with an interest in the project, to tell us what they think.”
The survey can be completed online at www.ealing.gov.uk/services/council/consultations Alternatively, paper copies are available by contacting Holly Morgan-Smith on 020 8825 8315 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. They will also be available at Ealing schools after 19 April.
All responses must be with the council by Monday 31 May.
BSF is a national programme and is funded by the Government, Ealing Council and schools.
