The facilities will be available on evenings, weekends and during school holidays

The school where music legend David Bowie picked up his art O Level will be opening its creative and sporting facilities for public use.

Ravens Wood School will be letting outs its facilities, which include a 3G football pitch, a main hall and a sports hall, for hire.

Based in Oakley Road, the Starman attended the school from 1958 to 1963, when it operated as Bromley Technical High School.

Sally Spence, head teacher at Ravens Wood School, said: “We’re proud of the facilities we offer our students, it makes sense to us that they are available to use during evenings and weekends as well.”

The facilities will be available to hire via School Lettings Solutions, which works with schools to manage facilities at no cost to the organisation.

To enquire about the facilities that are on offer, call 01689 414 664 or email ravenswood@schoollettings.org

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.
