The road outside a closed secondary school is to be used for filming next week.

Stomp Road, which runs past the former Burnham E-ACT Academy is to be completely shut on Monday, December 11.

Local authority Buckinghamshire Council have approved the filming, with a diversion route in place via Priory Road and Windsor Lane.

In October the school site housed the cast of Heartstopper who were seen filming carnival scenes in the school's rugby fields.

It is currently unknown who is behind the future filming.

What happened to Burnham E-ACT Academy?

Burnham E-ACT Academy was last open to students in 2019.

It has since been the subject of debate, with calls to reopen the school and outrage at the continued use for filming.

Burnham E-ACT Academy opened in 2012, taking over from Burnham Upper School as a mixed school for 11 to 18-year-olds.

Sat on the border of Buckinghamshire and Slough, it attracted students from neighbouring areas.

However, from the beginning of the move to Academy status, Ofsted kept a careful eye on the school stating in a monitoring visit in December 2012 that the: "academy’s predecessor school was judged to be a school causing concern."

In January 2014 the school was stamped with a 'requires improvement' rating and in 2016 was judged as 'inadequate'.

A damning Ofsted report in 2019 saw the school close.

Since then the school has stood empty and in May 2022 parents and villagers began to put pressure on Buckinghamshire Council to reopen the school.

Buckinghamshire Council told this newspaper in November that the school remains in "good condition" with filming income helping with the maintenance of the site.
