It will open in September next year, a year later than planned due to problems with securing a site.

“It will be full of bold opportunities, experiences and adventures for future generations of Hounslow.”
Students will be housed in a temporary site in Isleworth before the new school building is ready in 2020 at the current Grasshoppers Rugby Club site on Macfarlane Lane.
The sports club is in the process of arranging a move to its new home on the Conquest Club site, also in Isleworth.
It will be a six form entry school for ages 11 to 16, providing 900 places at full capacity.
Plans also include providing post-16 education for a further 250 students and a specialist centre for 25 children with Special Educational Needs.
The school will also look to collaborate with its neighbour Sky .
It will also offer a range of facilities including a four court Multi Use Games Area (MUGA), an indoor sports hall and studio, classrooms for adult education as well as retaining two existing rugby pitches.
