New Primary School Update

Over the past few years Labour Lambeth worked with the government to deliver extra primary school places for families in Norwood. Last year Kingswood primary school was doubled in size to four form entry. Another new primary will open in West Norwood next year: giving local parents more choice and taking pressure off Gipsy Hill primary school places.

The new West Norwood primary school will open as 2 forms of entry (60 children) from September 2011 and be run as part of Julian’s school. Negotiations to acquire the site will be completed soon. The architects Shepheard, Epstein & Hunter (who designed the rebuild of Kings Avenue school)  are already working on initial plans for the school.

Parents can now apply for a place for their child to start in September 2011 at the new school. Whilst the school is being built children attending the new school will use temporary  classrooms at the current Julian’s site. However the distance from home to school, as part of the admissions criteria for the new school, will be based on the new school site – the location should be made public by December 2010.

When the building work is complete in 2012 the children in the new school will move to it’s new site.

A general meeting for parents interested in information about admissions to any Lambeth primary school will be at 5.30pm on Thursday 18 November 2010 at Julian’s Primary School, 226 Leigham Court Road SW16 2RB
