Harris Academy Rainham is working with the Department for Education to deliver a fantastic new Sixth Form Centre for Rainham, to address an identified need for further educational provision in the town. The proposed Sixth Form will provide state of the art facilities for 400 local young people, delivering first class post-16 education to prepare students for further education, university, training or employment.

ISG Construction has been appointed to build Rainham’s new Sixth Form and is preparing to submit a planning application for the building. Rainham’s new Sixth Form will be built on the site of the changing facilities and disused swimming pool for the school sports hall at Harris Academy Rainham. The drab single storey concrete block will be demolished to make way for a new building incorporating high quality design and materials, housing state of the art learning facilities as well as space for community use. The new Sixth Form will also incorporate new tree planting and landscaping to greatly enhance the school’s frontage onto Wennington Road.
