We are pleased to confirm that Bellevue Education has submitted a planning application to the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to create a new, non-selective senior school in Chelsea, London.  The school will be called Chelsea Senior School.

Having identified a gap in the independent sector for secondary education in this part of Chelsea, combined with a desire to provide a smooth senior school transition for our pupils at The Hampshire School Chelsea, the aim will be to provide greater choice for families living in West London. 

Chelsea Senior School will be housed in the former BT Telephone Exchange building on Mallord Street, which will allow us the space required to provide pupils with the very best facilities and learning environment. 

As part of the proposals submitted, we have held a Public Exhibition to present the scheme to the local community, and have also engaged with the Council’s Planning Officers. Design and logistical changes have subsequently been made, as a result of feedback and dialogue, and are contained in our final submission. This can be viewed here.

We will continue to engage with local neighbours and groups on our way to a planning decision, in order to listen and make further changes where necessary. Some immediate neighbours have expressed concerns about traffic congestion and noise associated with arrival and departure times. These are usual concerns when planning for new schools, and we remain committed to a School Travel Plan and a School Management Plan that will minimise the impact of the school use. 

We will provide regular updates on the project on our website. 

Details for the planning permission application are as follows:
