Bowmer + Kirkland (B+K) has been selected by the Department for Education (DfE) as the main contractor to build Chilmington Green Secondary School. The plans are for a site south east of Ashford Road in Great Chart, Kent which forms part of the South Ashford Garden Community.

Outline permission for a new mixed 11-18 six form entry school was granted as part of the wider Orchard Village area. We are now seeking community feedback on the detailed plans for the new secondary school which are planned to meet the Government’s new energy efficiency and net zero carbon standards.
