Adoped Kensington Academy and Leisure Centre (KALC) SPD

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea has a long standing need for more secondary school places. The new Chelsea Academy has resolved this issue for the south of the Borough, but there is still a need in the north of the Borough. At present there are no co-educational non-denominational community schools north of Notting Hill Gate. This means that more than a third of children who live in the Borough, and are educated in a local authority secondary school, go to school outside the Borough.

Finding a site for a new school in the north of the Borough is not easy. A number of possible sites were considered. The site of the existing Kensington Leisure Centre, including the all-weather pitches and Lancaster Green has been selected as the best option.
