Ealing Council originally planned to use BSF funding to upgrade and expand 17
high and special schools and build a new school in Greenford, but Education
Secretary, Michael Gove, announced on 5 July 2010 that he was bringing the BSF
programme to an end.
Despite losing much of our BSF funding, Ealing Council has managed to secure
enough investment to modernise and expand two high schools.
Under our revised programme, Dormers Wells High School, Southall, will be
completely rebuilt on its existing site and The Cardinal Wiseman School,
Greenford, will be refurbished and remodelled with some new buildings. Both
schools will also receive significant investment in their information and
communications technology (ICT).
Our aim is to create state-of-the-art learning centres that encourage
excellence from both pupils and teachers.
