A school in Chingford is to expand with a new building to cater for 300 more students, the council announced on 12 April 2016.
Heathcote Secondary School and Science College, on Normanton Park, will be provided with a new year seven classroom block with pedestrian access from Whitehall Road.
The new two-storey block will include classrooms, staff rooms and an activity centre.
Thanks to the new space, the number of places available for pupils at the school will reach 1,200, and 48 more staff members will be hired, bringing the total to 172.
