Hammersmith schools to receive injection of cash

February 5, 2013

The council has recently announced £33million of investment in education with 18 primary and secondary schools in Hammersmith and Fulham receiving windfalls varying from £40,000 for refurbishment, to more than £4m to take in more students.

The investment is needed to cater for the booming population and the hundreds more children attending state schools inside the borough, rather than outside or going private.

Lady Margaret in Parsons Green, one of the borough’s most over-subscribed high schools, will use £6m to create an extra entry form.

Other big winners include Burlington Danes Academy, in White City, which has secured £4.5m to create a new primary in the north of the borough.

St Stephen’s and Pope John primaries will receive £5.4m and £4.5m to double their capacity.

A £7.7m pot will pay for smaller improvements to classrooms, toilets and other facilities in 38 schools across the borough.

 “We know from the amount of families renting in the borough that there is certainly many children looking for good schools locally,” says Sophie Durkin, manager at the Hammersmith branch of lettings agent Bushells. “Renting is a popular option for families when moving to a new area and of course schools are always a top priority.”
