A head teacher is “delighted” the new school he will lead can now be built after a plot of land was signed over.
Last week the News reported the NHS had finally signed over two plots of land on the Dulwich Hospital site so that plans for the new Charter East Dulwich secondary school could go ahead.
Two out of three pieces of land on the site have now been signed over to the Education Funding Authority, with the third plot to be transferred once the new health centre is built and health services moved over.
Alex Crossman, head teacher of The Charter School East Dulwich, said: “This is a seminal moment for us. We are delighted to be able to offer comfort and security regarding our permanent site to the huge number of local families who have already applied for places at our school.”
The Charter School East Dulwich is currently consulting the community for the temporary buildings which will be completed by September 2016, ready for its first intake of year seven students.
