Barking Abbey School is a 9FE secondary school with a large sixth form of over 600 students. It is ranked in the top 20% of all schools in the UK for progress at Key Stage 4 and rated as ‘Good with Outstanding features’ by Ofsted. The school operates on three sites in Barking which are just under a mile apart.
The school is to be expanded across all of its sites and the new buildings are to provide; 2,450m2 of specialist teaching accommodation and a new sixth form centre at the Sandringham campus, 3,200m2 of specialist teaching accommodation and a new kitchen and dining hall at the Longbridge campus and 1,300m2 of sporting and community facilities on its sports area.
The project was won in a design competition with our contractor partner Neilcott Construction Ltd and is due to commence on site in early 2018.
