Athletes Village

Community Facilities

As well as attractive and practical homes, tempting shops, world-class leisure facilities, beautiful green space and great transport links, Athletes Village will offer something else that’s just as important.

Community facilities, built for everyone to use and enjoy, will provide the people who live here with excellent education and healthcare, plus indoor space that residents can use to meet, socialise and pursue hobbies and interests.

Stratford Academy will provide education opportunities for everyone from pre-school children to adults. Hundreds of new nursery, primary and secondary school places will be available, as well as a varied adult education programme. Shared facilities for students and the wider community will include playing fields and a games area.

The new Community Centre will be a public indoor space with rooms that residents can use for meetings or social gatherings. Local clubs will also be able to use the centre as a base. Local people will own and run the centre, through a body called a Community Development Trust, which we will set up before building work starts.

There’ll also be a 2,800 square metre, one-stop Primary Health Centre, run by Newham NHS Primary Healthcare Trust. Residents will have easy access to GP and other primary health services like chiropody and physiotherapy.
