London South East Acadamies Trust is keen to develop a new, innovative 11-19 school in Bromley to help address the serious shortage of secondary school places in the Borough.
The Science, Health and Wellbeing (SHaW) Futures Academy will offer students an innovative blend of academic and technical education, specialising in these key industry areas. There is a growing demand for skills in these expanding science and health-related sectors. Our proposed school will open up many career opportunities for young people in the region, while securing a pipeline of skilled employees in these expanding industries for the coming years.
The new school is supported by a number of employers from the science, health and wellbeing industries including; King’s College Hospital NHS Trust, Oxleas NHS Trust and MyTimeActive. Canterbury Christ Church University is supporting the project as the university partner.
The site that had initially been identified by EFSA for the new school was found by the planning inspectorate to be unsuitable for this particular project. We fully respect this decision but there is no disputing the need for more school places in Bromley.
We will continue to work with EFSA and the Local Authority to help address the growing demand for secondary provision - with our aim to create additional high quality school places for young people in the Borough.
