Expansion of Greenford High School proposed

As part of Ealing Council’s work to meet the growing demand for school places in the borough, it is proposed to expand Greenford High School in Lady Margaret Road from 1,200 pupils to 1,500 by 2022.

This would be phased in over five years starting with two extra classes for 60 students in year 7 in 2018. Ealing Council would fund the cost of work to build extra classrooms.

As well as increasing the number of students who can join the school, residents are being asked for their views on proposals to build an Additionally Resourced Provision (ARP) for pupils with special educational needs who would attend Greenford High School.   The centre would accommodate 20 pupils.

Councillor Binda Rai, cabinet member for children and young people said: “Every child should have the best start in life by giving them the opportunity to go to a good, local school. I am proud of the work we have done to create extra primary school places for our children and since 2012 we have created 1,200 extra high school places through careful planning and investment and our work with governing bodies.

“There is a lot of demand for school places in and around Greenford and I would like to hear the views of parents, teachers and residents.”

Residents can learn more about the proposals and submit their views via our Have Your Say section.

Views must be submitted by Friday, 12 February 2016 and a decision on whether to pursue the proposals will be made by the council’s cabinet in the spring.
