We are a group of teachers and education specialists with a vision to provide excellence in education by opening a new state-funded non-religious primary and secondary school in the London Borough of Barnet. We plan to open the school soon. We will also provide a nursery. If you are looking to place your child in a school in the area we would love you to support us – please visit our survey website to register your interest in the new school and answer a few short questions: www.surveymonkey.com/s/QSM2QLM
Why are we opening a new school?
There is a shortage of school places in Barnet and this is set to worsen. Families will struggle to place their child in a local school. Our new school will help counter this growing problem by providing 60 student places per year group.
Where will the school be located?
The school will be located in one of these areas: Finchley, North Finchley, Friern Barnet, Coppetts Wood, Mill Hill East, Colindale, Brent Cross or possibly further afield. We can’t be certain at this stage as it will depend on where the most demand lies as well as where our survey indicates is the best area for the school.
What curriculum will we offer?
Our teaching philosophy will be inspired by the hugely successful International Baccalaureate curriculum (IB). We are currently working with the IB in becoming an authorised IB world school so to offer the Primary Years programme. We will align the IB Primary Years Programme curriculum with the UK National Curriculum to offer an outstanding, world-class education for your child. We will provide the best teachers and class sizes will be small.
What is our goal?
Our goal is to nurture natural talent and true potential by giving students the opportunity to develop cognitively at their own pace, to encourage them to be independent thinkers and learners, and above all, for them to be confident and happy.
How can you help?
Please visit our survey website to register your interest in the new school and answer a few short questions: www.surveymonkey.com/s/QSM2QLM. Your answers are very important and will form part of the “evidence of need” we require in order to open the school. This does not commit you to anything at this stage nor will it prevent you from applying to other schools for placement. Your registration is confidential and will not be shared with the Local Authority. The survey is only to show the Department for Education that there is a need for this school in the Borough of Barnet.
By signing up YOU can help make this new school become a reality and give your child a world-class education.
