In 2010 Greenwich Council offered the school the opportunity to move to the Greenwich Peninsula. The project involved the building of a £32 million state of the art school. The governors, with the support of the school senior leadership team, accepted the offer, subject to a suitable site being agreed, and the school was looking forward with anticipation to beginning an exciting project with the building ready for occupation in 2012, during the Olympic year.

Stunning drawings were produced by the Architects and everyone was getting excited with anticipation. Then the blow fell. At the general election on 6th May there was a change of government and one of the first moves by the new government was to scrap the funding known as “Building Schools for the Future” which would have paid for a large part of the project. The plan was dead in the water.
