The two school projects in London bring the builder’s tally of free school work to 18 projects.
The West London Free School, set up by journalist Toby Young, was one of the first to open in 2011. Just over a year into operation, the school is proving hugely successful, with nine applicants for every place.
Willmott Dixon is now completing site investigations to create a permanent home for the school in Pallinswick House, Kings Street, Hammersmith and aims to sign a £8.4m contract in March.
The firm will also build a £5.4m permanent home for Wapping High School in East London, which opened its doors last September in temporary accommodation in a local church.
The free school has gained planning permission for a permanent site on Commercial Road.
Both schools were procured through the Scape framework and Chris Tredget, managing director at Willmott Dixon in North London said: “Willmott Dixon is fast developing a track record in Free Schools, being selected as construction partner of choice by Free School groups.”
