|Earl's Court Free Primary Officially Opens in Hammersmith|
New school shares Cambridge Grove premises before moving to permanent home
West London Free School's second primary school, Earl's Court Free School Primary, has officially been opened.
On Friday October 17, Sam Gyimah, MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for
Childcare and Education, formally opened the new primary on behalf of
The West London Free School charitable trust.
West London Free School says this new school helps address the shortfall in primary school places in West London, and like the trust's other two schools, the Earl’s Court Free School Primary will provide children with a classical liberal education, focusing on a core of academic subjects complemented by art, music, drama and competitive sport.
However, as that development will not be complete until 2020 the Earl’s Court Free School Primary has opened alongside the West London Free School Primary in Cambridge Grove in 2014.
30 children will be admitted to rReception each year until the school moves to its permanent home, at which point it will
double in size.
" What West London Free School has proved is that it is helping
young people thrive and I am glad to have been able to support WLFS in the few short months
I've been in this job."
" That approach has proved so popular with local parents that my group is now opening a third school and our aim is to open many more as long as there is a demand for this type of school."
