St Paul’s Way school transformation underway
ONE of the borough’s biggest new school redevelopments is well under way for its New Year opening as visitors witnessed for themselves during a tour today.
St Paul’s Way Trust School in Mile End is undergoing a �36 million revamp and will include a new modern complex on its Shelmerdine Close grounds.
The 1,200 students who attend the school will be able to move into the new building next term.
Bulldozers will then set in on the old block and the grounds will eventually be used to improve the school’s sports facilities.
The revamp has been funded by the council, Partnerships for Schools and London Thames Gateway Development Corporation.

He added: “This is a massive investment in the future of the borough’s children – providing improvements to teaching, along with the motivation and confidence they need to achieve.”
