About the Academy
The new City Heights Academy is an exciting new secondary school designed to deliver an excellent 21st century education to local children and for the wider community in Tulse Hill and North Streatham.
The new City Heights E-ACT Academy will address the demand for secondary school pupils within Lambeth. A statistical analysis of pupil places by postcode demonstrates that the postcodes SW2 and SW16 are the areas in most need of further secondary provision. The Fenstanton site of the new Academy is located centrally within these postcodes.
The Academy will provide 900 places for pupils aged 11-16 and a further 200 places for young people aged 16- 18.
The Academy will open for 180 Year 7s in temporary accommodation in Somerleyton Road from September 2013.
In September 2014 a new group of Year 7s will join the then Year 8s in a brand new purpose-built school building. The school will then grow year on year as the original pupils progress through the school.
There will be exciting approaches to learning that involve and bring out the best in the Academy's young people. Students identified as gifted and talented will, in addition to personalised learning within timetabled lessons, benefit from a range of extension opportunities, such as master-classes and focused visits. Similarly, students with additional needs will have their learning requirements met through individual programmes.
E-ACT believes that students who are healthy, safe and happy are best placed to learn and achieve. The proposed Academy will provide student services and work with other agencies to support the government's Every Child Matters agenda, doing all it can to support children in their learning.
