Detailed designs for north Greenfordís new high school have been unveiled at a public exhibition.

The school is planned for the old GlaxoSmithKline Sports and Social Club grounds on Oldfield Lane North and is scheduled to open in September 2013, subject to planning permission.

It will be run by the Twyford Church of England High School and the London Diocesan Board for Schools.  

When full, it will have places for 1200 11 to 16 year olds, a sixth form with places for 250 students and a centre for children with special educational needs.

Under current proposals, the local community will also be able to use the school’s facilities including its full-sized sports pitches, flood-lit hard playing surfaces, indoor sports hall and activity studio.

David Archibald, executive director, children and adults at Ealing Council, said: “I know that many local families will be pleased to see plans progress to this stage and will want to see the designs for their long-awaited new school.

“We have worked closely with central government and the Twyford Church of England Academy Trust to get to this stage and we want to make sure that local people are given a chance to have their say too.”
