Parents are invited to view proposals for a new school in Brent to help meet growing demand for places for students with special educational needs.
The Avenue School will provide 104 places for young people aged four to 19 with autism and complex needs.
The drop-in event is on Thursday next week between 4.30pm and 7.30pm at the Manor School in Chamberlayne Road.
Located on a site with a long history of educational use, most recently providing temporary accommodation for Marylebone Boys' School, the new school will be operated by Brent Specialist Academy Trust (BSAT) expanding their educational offer at the nearby Manor School.
It's being funded by the Department for Education and Galliford Try has been appointed to design and build it. The firm will shortly be submitting a planning application.
