The Charter School

North Dulwich

Public Consultation on the new school

Information on Proposed Admissions Policy and Vision & Ethos & Curriculum available for consultation.

The Charter School Educational Trust is holding a Public Consultation for the new school opening in September 2016.

The consultation period runs from 18th May 2015 and ends on 26th of June 2015. It is part of the process that every Free School must undertake to secure funding and will allow us to respond to community issues.

We invite the views of local stakeholders about our plans for The Charter School East Dulwich currently in pre-opening stage supported by the Department of Education.

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 The Charter School Educational Trust, it will build on the success of The Charter School on Red Post Hill, rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted.

Please see attached our proposed Admissions Policy and Vision & Ethos & Curriculum Offer of the new school.

To share your views, please click through to the on-line consultation to answer the questions and provide your comments and feedback.

Alternatively, if you would like to discuss the school and complete the questionnaire in person, you are invited to join us at one of the Public Consultation Events we are hosting during June. Alex Crossman, the newly appointed Head Teacher Designate, other representatives of the Trust and the local parents behind the new school will be present to answer your questions.

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

Each event will run from 7pm to 9pm. Your voice matters to us. Please join us to hear our vision and share your views.

Consultation questionnaires must be completed by 5pm Friday 26th June 2015.

Welcome from Alex Crossman, Head Teacher Designate

“Hello and a very warm welcome to The Charter School East Dulwich. We are delighted to be developing our new school for the local community and look forward to welcoming our founding students in September 2016.

We will build on the outstanding success of our sibling school, The Charter School on Red Post Hill, 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 by completing our consultation questionnaire either online or at one of the consultation events. Your feedback will be important to us as we work to create a great school to serve our diverse community.”
