Sydenham School has officially opened its new £26m building.

The school is the last secondary to be built using Lewisham's £300m Building Schools for the Future funding.

The new development features a teaching block with large well-equipped science and technology laboratories, along with an arts building containing dance and drama studios, plus music rooms.

And the school now even has its own state-of-the-art recording studio. 

Many of the new facilities will be open to the public and community groups.

Headteacher Carolyn Unsted said: "We are absolutely delighted with the new school buildings which will give current and future students the very best educational facilities and learning environment. 

"It’s not just a school, it’s also a community hub and we have plans to open it up so that local residents can use the facilities, for example the IT suite, to raise their own skill levels.

"This is a great investment for the whole community."
