St John’s CoE Primary, Croydon – Planning Approval

St John’s CoE Primary, Croydon  – Planning Approval

May 2016

Planning Approval has been received for the full 1FE expansion of St. John’s CoE Primary School, with Willmott Dixon Construction, for the London Borough of Croydon.

This expansion will enable the existing 1FE Primary School to grow to a full two-form entry site, achieving the benefits that are associated with this (staff and training opportunities, funding, additional specialist subjects and teaching staff) while importantly ensuring that sufficient Primary School places are provided within this area of Croydon.

The building is designed to meet the sustainable and environmental requirements of the London Plan, and is to be constructed from cross-laminated timber (CLT). The project is part of a wider Batch (of 5 schools) to ensure that adequate primary school places are available right across Croydon over the coming years.
