A new free school is set to open in Beckenham, South East London next September. The Beckenham Academy, will take on 11-18 year olds and will be run by the Education for the 21st Century Trust. The school will temporarily accommodate itself at the Ravensbourne School, which is also part of the Trust. The school will have 180 places and parents can apply for a place for their child now.
Headteacher Emily Codling said: "The trust's philosophy is developing the whole child. It's important to not only think about their results, but also their future."
