Willmott Dixon has been given the go-ahead to build the biggest school in London to be funded by Building Schools for the Future.

The £28m Stockwell Park school, in Lambeth, south London, was designed by Sheppard Robson. The building, which received an “excellent” design rating from Cabe, includes an amphitheatre, gardens and a sensory area for children with special needs. Work is to begin next month.
