Construction has begun for Bellenden Primary School
Construction has begun for the new build Bellenden Primary School in Peckham, which when completed will allow the school to relocate from its existing run down facilities nearby to the new building on the site of a disused care home.
The school is an important centre for the local community, and its new building, nursery and play areas will offer upgraded community facilities. The location of the dining area and kitchen at the front of the site allows these areas to operate independently and securely from the school if required. As well as offering up to date teaching, play and community spaces, the new building will cater for rising pupil numbers, allowing expansion from one form entry to two form entry.
This project is due to be completed in February 2018.
