Foster and Partners has unveiled its new £10 million city academy in Bexley. The project, organised around three courtyard spaces devoted to business, art and technology, avoids the use of corridors. It is designed to be highly flexible with partition walls adding to the adaptability of the classrooms. The secondary school will make its facilities available to others in the area. The City Academy Programme is a scheme by which 20 per cent of a new school's cost is covered by a private entrepreneur.
