The Proposal

Galliford Try have been appointed by the Royal Borough of Greenwich to deliver the new school. Galliford Try’s Design Team are currently in the process of designing the scheme and this consultation seeks your views to help shape the new school.

The new school will be for pupils aged 11-19 years who have Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) with complex learning needs. The school will have capacity for 128 pupils.

The current proposals which we are seeking your views on propose a series of 3 connected buildings each being 2 storeys in height stepping down into the site from Hargood Road following the slope of the land.

The proposals include staff parking for 61 vehicles including accessible spaces and spaces fitted with charging facilities for electric vehicles.

The proposals also include sufficient space to allow for minibuses to enter the site to drop-off and pick up pupils. The proposals seek to ensure all mini buses picking up pupils will be able to wait within the site.

The proposals also include landscaping and outdoor play space for pupils.
