Wandsworth council has released more details about the new primary school to be built on the site of the Atheldene Centre in 2014.
The new school, which the council says is needed to meet the borough's rising birth rate, is projected to have places for 420 pupils and 50 nursery-age children when fully open. The council has not yet secured planning permission for the site.
The council has now named its preferred provider to run the school, Floreat educational trust. The choice must now be approved by the Secretary of State for Education. Floreat say:
"In order to flourish, children need to develop both their minds and
their morals. We believe that schools should be developing pupils who
can be curious, work hard, be good and do good."
Key players at Floreat include a previous policy adviser to David Cameron, a former PricewaterhouseCoopers consultant and Cabinet Office senior civil servant, and an education expert.
