Students at a new Beckenham school can now see what their school will look like when it opens next year.

Eden Park High School took its first cohort of Year 7s in September, currently teaching them in a temporary building on the grounds of The Ravensbourne School.

But in January, construction work on the 1,600 place school will begin, with the first 180 pupils expected to move in by the end of the school year.

Building work on Balmoral Avenue will include a number of sports facilities, a kiln room, dark room and wetland centre, to provide a range of different activities for students.

Plans for the school were approved by Bromley council earlier this year, as the borough faces one of London’s worst shortfalls in school places by 2022.
