Education provision will be considered as part of the Legacy Masterplan Framework (LMF) work programme, and the Government continue to consider a range of possibilities for an educational legacy, including an out-of-classroom education facility.

The sustainable legacy for the Olympic Park site and surrounding communities will include new housing; sporting, retail and entertainment facilities; and supporting social infrastructure, including educational facilities. The London Development Agency (as interim legacy client) and Olympic Delivery Authority are working with partners including Government, the host boroughs and local communities to produce the LMF by early 2009, which will set out a vision for the Olympic Park, and the broad provision of facilities and infrastructure within it.
