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.

People can view the plans and speak to members of the design team, as well as representatives from BSAT, at the session.
