Hammersmith & Fulham Council has today, 16 July, launched a public consultation on their proposed amalgamation of New King’s and Sulivan primary schools, naming The Fulham Boys School as the potential occupants of the Sulivan primary site.
In the event that the site becomes vacant, the FBS founders have confirmed their interest in it as the permanent home for the state-funded Church of England Free School.
FBS Chair of Governors, Alex Wade, said: “Our application to open a free school was based on the high demand in Fulham for an outstanding Church of England secondary school, open to boys from all local primaries, and from all faiths and none. We respect that this is just the start of the consultation process but have registered our strong interest in the site should it become available.”
The Fulham Boys School is due to open in temporary premises in September 2014.
- For LBH&F’s consultation please go to the Hammersmith and Fulham website.
- The Fulham Boys School and the Department for Education have been exploring a wide range of possible sites for the school, including commercial developments, government owned property and local authority sites. As a Free school, its premises will be funded directly by the Department for Education.
- FBS will be opening on temporary premises in September 2014. Applications for a place in Year 7 open as part of the pan-London co-ordinated admissions on 1 September 2013.
