The Evelyn Grace Academy is expected to be completed in July 2010. The multi million pound project sponsored by ARK, will be at the forefront of East Brixton, Loughborough Junction and Herne Hill’s regeneration. The project which is costing an estimated £38,000,000 will provide an integrated landscape and building design that will cater for 1,200 secondary school pupils and will provide a range of external play spaces and sports facilities.

The school is currently located in a temporary site and the first year has been a huge success, the schools motto of 100% is paying dividends.

The Evelyn Grace Academy – A new School in Loughborough Junction

The Evelyn Grace Academy is a new school in Brixton, it will open in September 2008 and provide 180 places for year 7 pupils. The Academy will initially be located in high quality purpose built temporary accommodation on Somereyton Road. In september 2009 the Academy with move into state of the art new accommodation on Shakespeare Road in Loughborough Junction and over the next few years will grow into a full secondary school with its own 6th form.

Promoting outstanding learning and maintaining excellent standards of behavior lie at the heart of the schools ethos. The school will promote communication, community, excellence, endeavor, self-discipline  and pride to the students whilst also teaching the students to make balanced decisions in every day life.

We are really interested to see if the school can live up to the expectations, this is an exciting new venture for the area and must be a positive addition of benefit to many local families.
