A topping out ceremony took place at Lake Farm Park Academy this month, a school that is part of the authority’s £150 million education investment programme.
The primary school, in Hayes, will provide 630 student places, incorporating 90 places for nursery pupils and 12 places for children with special needs.
It features an orchard, bat and bird boxes and a kitchen garden, with new trees planted to blend in with the surrounding parkland. A range of energy efficiency and water saving technologies will also be developed to minimise its impact to the local environment and cut its carbon footprint.
Leader of Hillingdon Council, Councillor Ray Puddifoot was in attendance at the event, as well as the mayor of Hillingdon, Cathereine Dann.
Puddifoot said: “"Our priority is to make sure that every child in Hillingdon receives the outstanding education they deserve and we are proud to be able to provide this to the children of Hayes in such a superb facility.
"We are firmly committed to investing in our future and building classrooms of the right quality, in the right place."
