The Charter School Educational Trust (TCSET) is starting a public consultation for a new secondary school to serve East Dulwich and surrounding areas. The consultation follows the successful bid to the DfE to open a Free School, and runs from 18th May to 26th June 2015 with an on-line survey and public meetings.

Public Consultation Meetings 7pm – 9pm:

  • 3rd June 2015 at St John’s & St Clement’s Primary School, Adys Road, SE15 4DY
  • 9th June 2015 at Albrighton Centre, Albrighton Road, Dog Kennel Hill Estate, SE22 8AH
  • 18th June 2015 at Heber Primary School, Heber Road, SE22 9LA

The Charter School East Dulwich will be a co-educational, non-selective, non-faith, inclusive 11-18 secondary school, delivering the highest quality education for young people in its immediate diverse locality where there is a shortage of secondary school places from 2016 onwards. Run by TCSET, it will build on the success of The Charter School on Red Post Hill, rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted.

Alex Crossman, the newly appointed Head Teacher Designate says, “We will build on the outstanding success of our sibling school, The Charter School, one of the highest performing state schools in England. Both schools share a passionate belief in the power of education to transform the life chances of young people from all backgrounds. The Charter School East Dulwich will combine the best of traditional teaching practice with the most valuable new insights into how young people learn. Our engaging, inspiring curriculum will prepare students for lives of personal and professional fulfillment. I hope you will share your views on our plans for The Charter School East Dulwich. Your feedback will be important to us as we work to create a great school to serve our diverse community.”

The consultation is part of the process that every Free School must undertake to secure funding and will allow TSCET to respond to community issues. Local stakeholders are invited to respond to the survey about The Charter School East Dulwich and to find specific information on the new school’s vision and ethos, the education offering and the proposed admissions policy along with a link to the on-line consultation at The Charter School website. Paper copies of the consultation are available upon request.
