Haverstock Associates has seen off stiff competition to design a new £30 million school in Sutton, south London.
The Stanley Park High School scheme is part of the government's £45 billion Building Schools for the Future scheme, and will see the existing school relocated and rebuilt.
The north London firm, which has a growing reputation in the education sector, was appointed as preferred designer after a 'mini' design competition and interview process.
Sutton Council is currently looking for a preferred site, and it said there are three options. However, one site, the Stanley allotments, is facing a great deal of local opposition.
The council hopes to have the new school up and running by September 2010.by Richard Vaughan
