Eltham school expansion planned

Plans have been submitted to expand St Thomas Moore school in Eltham.

Architects were commissioned back in January 2018 to design buildings for an extra 150 pupils in addition to 620 currently there.

The planned buildings are directly next to some just completed retirement flats built by Churchill named Jefferies Lodge.

The new buildings will be located on a spot currently grass and trees facing Footscray Road, and incorporate:

  • Science classroom
  • DT or Art space
  • Learning Resources areas
  • Storage




  •  Toilets
  • Multi-Function Activity Space
  • 3no. of Standard Classrooms
  • Staff Room

The current school buildings date from 1964.

The site is just south and east of Eltham High Street. Woolwich based architects Martin Arnold are behind the design.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.
