A school is set to reveal their plans for their new home which will allow it to expand how many students it takes.

The International Academy of Greenwich plans to move from its current location just off the A20 Eltham Road so it can expand to 765 students.

The school in Lee Green was set up by parents and interested local residents in 2013 and has a distinctive focus on languages, teaching through the International Baccalaureate curriculum.

It was already oversubscribed by 2014 when a petition was launched by prospective parents trying to persuade the council to find a permanent site for the school.

In 2016 the school expanded from 100 students to 125, but the search was still on to find a new home. This is on top of the 100 students in had in the previous year.

Eventually the former site of the Bowring Sports Ground was identified as a potential home for the school, next to Blackheath Park.

If successful, the plans would see the construction of a secondary school building for up to 765 students.

A public consultation on the new plans will be held at the Old Colfeians Rugby Club on Eltham Roadon March 22 between 4pm and 8pm, as well as on March 24 between 10am and 2pm.

Liz Robinson, chair of governors for the International Academy of Greenwich, said: “After years of planning, preparing and listening to the local community, this is an exciting moment for Greenwich.

"The public consultation that we are hosting is a key chance for residents to express their thoughts and to ask questions about our plans for the school.

“We are building a really special place for children to learn and our proposals will offer hundreds of more pupils the chance to get a great education in Greenwich.

"We encourage as many people as possible to attend and I look forward to hearing their contributions.”
