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.
