Here are some pictures from the new Stockwell Park High School building taken last week. The school is the first in the ‘Building Schools for the Future’ programme to receive an ‘Excellent’ rating for architecture and build environment from the Committee for Architecture and Build Environment (CABE).
Phase 1 of the building is now open and the remainder of the building will be in use by Summer 2010. The new features include a new amphitheatre for drama, new gardens with allotments, a revamped dining room, a new sports hall and ICT suites.
Stockwell Park High School was recently rated as an ‘outstanding’ school by Ofsted and is also a specialist Business and Enterprise College and Training School.
GCSE results at the school were up by a staggering 21% in the last set of results, with the school the most improved in Lambeth.
Headteacher Judette Tapper said: "This has been a wonderful journey and the new building is a central part of our school's vision. It provides us with an opportunity for continuing to develop outstanding learning for the children at Stockwell Park High School."Cllr Pete Bowyer, who represents Stockwell said “It’s fantastic to see a building that truly reflects the ambition, hard work and determination of the kids who study in it, the teachers who inspire learning and the community who are supporting them.”
