Let’s make our vision a reality We are delighted to announce that our bid for our new Church of England co-educational secondary school in the south/central Lewisham area will be submitted to the Department for Education in September 2016.
Lewisham Church of England Secondary School plans to open in September 2019 with eight Year 7 classes (240 places) and admit the same number of Year 7 pupils each year thereafter, reaching full capacity of 1,200 pupils when the first students reach Year 11 in 2023. The school will operate an admissions policy in accordance with the School Admissions Code and will welcome all children of all faiths and none.
Co-educational, non-selective and free to attend, Lewisham Church of England Secondary School is being proposed by the Southwark Diocesan Board of Education and will offer a broad and balanced curriculum taught by qualified teachers. The school will have a value-added curriculum focus on maths and modern foreign languages, in keeping with our aim to increase both parental choice and widen diversity of secondary provision in the Borough. The students will also benefit from an extended school day, excellent pastoral care and a wide range of enrichment opportunities.
We need to demonstrate support from the local community to make this happen.
