Year 7 pupils are currently in temporary classrooms at The Ravensbourne School

Construction on a long-awaited secondary school is expected to get underway in January.

Eden Park High School, set for Balmoral Avenue in Beckenham, is currently teaching its first cohort of Year 7s at a temporary site inside the grounds of The Ravensbourne School.

The mixed secondary academy, which runs an extended school day from 8.30am to 5.30pm, expects the first 180 pupils to have joined the school in September, to move into the new site before the end of the academic year.

Building work is not expected to disrupt their learning, as E21C, the trust behind the academy, promises “enviable sport facilities, featuring a four-court sports hall, spectator galleries, glass-fronted gym, 3G all-weather flood lit pitch and type 3 Multi Use Games Area (MUGA).

“The site will also house a kiln room, dark room, habitat garden and outdoor STEM learning zone with a wetland centre and an amphitheatre, providing a first-rate secondary school education for all its students.”

Eden Park High School is expected to create around 1,600 places once it is full.

The trust claims an extended school day gives students a chance to catch up on schoolwork, pursue passions while offering “a more balanced school/family lifestyle.”

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.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
