Welcome to The Green School for Boys
|Why are we proposing to open The Green School for Boys in September 2016?|
There is a need for new secondary school places in Hounslow because the population is growing very quickly. In fact the deficit is projected as 11fe by 2017 and eventually growing to 32fe in 2019. The Green School for Boys will help to address the basic need for places in Hounslow.
There is no Church of England school for boys in Hounslow and Church of England schools in other boroughs are oversubscribed. Families often ask at The Green School why their boys can’t have a Church of England secondary education and we want boys to have the same choice that is available to girls.
At what stage are we in the department for education application process?
The Green School Trust is pleased that the Department for Education recognises the strengths of our proposal to open The Green School for Boys in 2016 and has encouraged us to reapply in October 2014.
The Department for Education stated that our proposal:
Demonstrates successful engagement with a broad section of the local community, resulting in
good evidence of parental demand
Demonstrates the strong track record of the existing girls’ school
Offers acredible proposal with a clear rational for establishing a Church of England boys’ school in Hounslow
The Trust reapplied to the Department for Education with a view to the school opening as planned in September 2016. The Trust is very determined to realise its aim of opening The Green School for Boys.
