Newham's Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme reached financial close for the first phase of the programme in January 2009. Design and development work is now progressing on the first wave of schools.
NTP has been selected to deliver a complete transformation of educational facilities throughout the borough. NTP is managing the finance, design and construction of the new and remodelled Community and Special Schools. Some of these are being financed through the Private Finance Initiative (PFI). In these cases special companies are set up to maintain and operate aspects of the school buildings for 25 years.
Alongside the build programme the LEP is delivering an integrated ICT service across the schools.
