Thanks for the info. Didn't realise it was ready to open so soon. The new school building looks amazing on the website. Was the flyer from the school or Southwark?

It was from the building contractors.

After an extended Christmas break to allow time for the move, the current Charter ED pupils will be starting back at the new the Jarvis Road site on 10th Jan.

Another proud achievement from my time in public office.
The idea for this new secondary school was a campaign led by yours truly - after we'd solved the local primary school shortage.
The land - after 25 years of NHS dithering - was only allocated after I made the first ever successful Right to Challenge how a public body , in this case the NHS, were not properly using public land. Special thanks to Caroline Pidgeon our local GLA Assembly Member and Nick Clegg the then Deputy Prime Minster who moved and shaked to help pull this together and Sir Francis Maude a Tory MP who at the time was the Cabinet Office Minister who took the decision making it possible to have our Charter East Dulwich or any school on the site.

Yep, well done James - You are rightly very proud.

Great news... it looked to me like there was still a fair amount to do when I went past the other day.

Crikey James, you'd think you would have been canonised for such service to humanity, not voted out... never mind, at least you're still incredibly pleased with yourself.

It's going to be great... so looking forward to my son going there after two and half years on the temporary site! Teachers and staff will be packing up and moving stuff over while the kids enjoy a massive long xmas break (they finish on the 14th December and go back to the new school on the 10th Jan)

The main school building is ready as is the gym. However, there will still be building work on site for the next phrase of development which is the sixth form centre. And buiding work on the new health centre which is directly in front of school will be going on for a few years!

Ditto - a lot of hard work, and James has every right to feel please and proud (thank you James) whilst the whole community benefits.

Well done James you worked so hard to get this for us. Sad that Tessa isnít here to see it; she did so much for North Charter.

Will the playgrounds be open for use?

Yes, well done, James.

I was wondering whether councillors could now start looking at the case of those of us who donít have access to Charter ED...

I was wondering that as well...

Apologies. Fat finger. Mistake now corrected. Just wondering about those of us who live in a secondary school black hole. Iím on Dunstans Road. Too far from Sydenham School nowadays and not sure weíll get into Harris Girls ED due to the complicated admission process. Would like a co-ed in any event if possible. I honestly am delighted about Charter ED and think itís a great addition to the area but it doesnít solve my problem.
