What is the process and how far through the process is the school?

In the Autumn Term 2013, The Green School Trust and some of the staff at The Green School worked with the London Diocesan Board for Schools (LDBS) to prepare a bid for The Green School for Boys. The bid is very detailed and it includes information about the education we plan to offer and the response we have had from local parents. Our bid was submitted to the Department for Education in January 2014. If the Department for Education (DfE) decide that our bid is of interest then we will have an interview and we will find out whether the school has permission to prepare to open later in 2014. If our proposal is accepted we would then have two years to work with the DfE to secure a site for the school and get everything ready to open the school in September 2016.


How can I get involved?

If you are a prospective parent with a son in Year 3 or 4 at the moment, and if The Green School for Boys would be your first choice of school for your son, then please register your interest here (link). Please note that you will need to fill out an application form at the normal time and registering here does not constitute a formal application, but by registering with us now you will help us to show the Department for Education that there is a high level of interest in the proposal.  Anyone who is interested in finding out more about the school, offering time or skills to help get the school started, giving feedback about any aspect of the proposal, or just keeping up to date with news about the school, can do so here (link). The plans are at an early stage of development. Feedback help us to make sure the plans really will meet the needs and aspirations of local families. This survey will take up to five minutes to complete and it gives you a change to tell us what you think of our plans. If you leave your email address we will add you to the Green School for Boys email list. We will send updates up to once a month as the school develops but we will not use your email address for any other purpose and you can ‘unsubscribe’ at any time.

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 2018 and eventually growing to 36fe. 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.

That is why The Green School Trust has applied to set up The Green School for Boys.

The Green School Trust is pleased that the Department for Education has recognised the strengths of our proposal to open The Green School for Boys in 2016 stating that our application:    

 

Proposal to open The Green School for Boys in 2016 

 

 

The Department has identified minor issues for clarification and has encouraged The Trust to reapply in October, with a view to the school opening as planned in September 2016. 
We are disappointed by this temporary setback but it has caused us to be even more determined to realise our vision to open The Green School for Boys.
  • 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 a credible proposal with a clear rational for establishing a Church of England boys’ school in Hounslow
