Lewisham schools unaffected by central cuts

The Government has revealed which schools will be affected by cuts to the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme, which was designed to create hundreds of new school buildings across the country.


According to this list from the BBC, none of the Lewisham projects is affected. The controversial rebuild of Gordonbrock, which many feared could be jeopardised by the delays in the project caused by a legal challenge by the Brockley Society, is not part of this review.

A total of 715 school building projects across the country will be cancelled.

Thanks to Monkeyboy (for the story, not the swingeing cuts).

If it's not on the list I seriously doubt it.

Gosh, you two are seriously behind the times! It was rebuilt two or three years ago, and it's now called Prendergast Ladywell Fields College.

Crofton primary school could do with a rebuild too.

Do you mean Brockley Primary School?

It's a relief to hear that Gordonbrock and Prendergast are safe from the govt's cuts, in respect of their building work, anyway.

Think it means schools that were funded from this particular source. Was gordonbrock funded from this?

No, I believe that the council is finding all the money from down the back of the sofa. The Building Schools for The Future project was specifically for secondary schools. Interesting to see that the BBC reports that 'Prendergast The Vale College' is unaffected by these cuts and yet not only has building not commenced it doesn't even have a definite site yet, given that Lewisham Bridge has been listed and can't now be knocked down.

For the sake of clarity, you are referring to Prendergast Ladywell Fields, not the school in Hilly Fields.
