THE SCHOOL SITE
The school is situated on the site of Old Bellenden School, at 165 Bellenden Road, SE15. Working with Southwark Council, the Department for Education and architectural practice Haverstock, we have been able to restore this extraordinary Victorian school building so it can be used by a new generation of children.
We have made best use of the existing Victorian architecture whilst updating the site to create an educational space fit for the 21st century.
An outdoor area provides children with space to play, grow plants and observe nature. The school also has exclusive use of the Latter Rain Church garden at Copleston Road for outdoor learning and play. Children are regularly taken to Warwick Gardens and other local green spaces.
