Following the article in the recent Society Journal about new local schools it has been confirmed that there is another bid being put forward to the Department for Education (DfE) for the secondary school on the proposed Dulwich Community Hospital Site. The target date for the new school opening is 2016 – with the aim of accommodating the increased number of students in the community who are currently in Years 3 and 4. All the main local political parties in Southwark have given their support to the idea. A final decision will be taken later this year.
The Charter School Educational Trust (which runs the Charter School on Red Post Hill) is now planning to bid alongside Haberdashers Aske’s Federation. It will be holding an Open Meeting at 7pm on Thursday 19 June at the United Reform Church on the corner of Melbourne Grove and East Dulwich Grove.
