When the school opens in September 2018 it will have a smaller intake, of 125 Year 7 students, for the first two years whilst co-located at William Perkin CE High School in Greenford before this figure increases to 196 students per year group when the school moves to its permanent site in Ealing.

Ada Lovelace will share William Perkin’s innovative curriculum model. As an EBACC subject, all students in key stages 3 and 4 will have a 50-minute Maths lesson every day. The Practical and Creative subject options, known as the Electives, take place in the afternoon. The elective subject areas are Art, Music, Sport, Creative Technologies and the Application of Science.
