Greenwich school gets first major development for 30 years
John Roan School's capacity is increased by one third with new science, design and technology rooms
One of Greenwich’s oldest secondary schools has had its first major development for over 80 years.
The £29 million re-development of the prestigious John Roan School took over two years to complete with significant improvements made to several areas of the school ground, increasing the school’s overall size by one third.
The aim for architects John McAslan + Partners was to remodel John Roan School’s existing Grade II listed building at Maze Hill and to provide a new 7,600 sqm school and community building at Westcombe Park.
The 1,400-pupil secondary school is split across two sites adjacent to Greenwich Park; the Maze Hill site is in the Greenwich Park Conservation Area, and the Westcombe Park site is in the Blackheath Conservation Area.
