Berkeley tackles the schools shortage
As the new term starts, families across England are struggling to secure a place at their preferred choice of school. With the population rising, London Councils estimate that nearly half a million new school places are urgently needed across the UK. In response, leading housebuilder the Berkeley Group is opening three new schools this September.
The three new schools are Kensington Primary Academy at its 375 Kensington High Street development in London, All Saints Rise Primary in Warfield, Berkshire as part of the Woodhurst Park development and Wells Free School in Tunbridge Wells Kent, part of the Royal Wells Park scheme.
We focus on creating beautiful, successful places in London and the South of England.
Established in 1976, the Berkeley Group is a publicly-owned FTSE 250 company. We build nearly 4,000 homes a year and employ over 12,000 people in the business and on our sites.
The Berkeley Group is made up of five autonomous companies: St George, St James, Berkeley, St Edward and St William.
