The 6782 m2 new building which stretches across 18029 m2 of land is strategically located with easy access to public transport and parking. The campus is surrounded by extensive fields at the back and next to a local Czech Primary school. When complete, the campus will boast state-of-the-art facilities split into two main buildings which will be custom – built to meet the needs of a nurturing and stimulating school environment. The initial capacity for the new school will be 450 pupils with a view to expanding this at a later date.
