Partnering with Silvertown’s New School

Last month we hosted a visit from Charles Claxton, the Brompton-cycling Principal Designate of Canning Town’s newest secondary school, Oasis Academy Silvertown, which will open this September.


He cycled the 6miles from the Ash Sakula offices in Farringdon to the Caravanserai at an impressive speed, managing to beat us to the site. (we took the lazy DLR route)


At the Caravanserai we bumped into Shane from Ravensbourne College and his film crew, who were preparing for their shoot the following day.
Here’s what Charles said about the visit:


We are really excited about the opportunity to work with Caravanserai. I had a site visit today and it’s great to see what can be achieved with a bit of imagination and a lot of creativity. For Oasis Academy Silvertown the benefits of working together are obvious. Our underpinning vision is to ‘Think Global, Act Local’ – this drives everything we do – and Caravanserai presents us with a very exciting local project that will enable our students and their community to experience a totally different perspective on their world.
