Funding approved for new southwest London school

Posted On Tuesday January 25, 2022

The Ministry of Education has announced funding for a new elementary school and child care centre in southwest London.

“We are very pleased the Ministry of Education has supported this important project that will help the Board deal with growing enrolment pressures in our elementary schools in London,” said Thames Valley Education Director Mark Fisher. “This is excellent news for our Board.”

The $20.7-million project includes a new school for 804 pupils, and a five-room child care centre for 88 infants, toddlers and pre-schoolers, to address accommodation pressures in southwest London.

“We are very excited the Ministry of Education has supported the construction of a new school and child care centre in southwest London,” said TVDSB Board Chair Lori-Ann Pizzolato, who noted the project could take up to 48 months to complete once land has been acquired.

The project is part of a provincewide investment of more than $600 million to support new school and child care spaces that were recently announced by Stephen Lecce, Minister of Education. 

“In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made safer schools a priority, which is why we continue to invest in modern and accessible learning spaces with improved ventilation,” said Minister Lecce. “This investment is part of our multiyear plan to build, expand, and update schools and child care spaces across our province. It will leave a lasting legacy that benefits working families for years to come.”
