World-class educational legacy unveiled for Olympic Village – London 2012


The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) and Lend Lease released new images today of a world-class education campus to be built within the Olympic Village.

The Olympic Village, which lies adjacent to the Olympic Park and Stratford City sites, will accommodate athletes during the 2012 Games and will leave the legacy of thousands of new homes, parks, and community facilities after 2012. At the heart of the community facilities to be left in legacy will be Chobham Academy – a world-class new education campus. The Academy is scheduled to open in September 2013.

Chobham Academy has been designed by architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (who designed the Stirling Prize-shortlisted Westminster Academy), and landscape designers Kinnear Landscape Architects. BAM are the preferred bidder for the construction contract for Chobham Academy.
