The new West Norwood primary school will open as 2 forms of entry (60 children) from September 2011 and be run as part of Julian’s school. Negotiations to acquire the site will be completed soon. The architects Shepheard, Epstein & Hunter (who designed the rebuild of Kings Avenue school) are already working on initial plans for the school.
Parents can now apply for a place for their child to start in September 2011 at the new school. Whilst the school is being built children attending the new school will use temporary classrooms at the current Julian’s site. However the distance from home to school, as part of the admissions criteria for the new school, will be based on the new school site – the location should be made public by December 2010.
When the building work is complete in 2012 the children in the new school will move to it’s new site.
The Lambeth primary school booklet has just been published class in 2011/12 and is full of information about Lambeth primary schools. You can see a copy on the Lambeth web site.
Applications for children starting in reception class in September 2011 need to be in by 14th January 2011.
A general meeting for parents interested in information about admissions to any Lambeth primary school will be at 5.30pm on Thursday 18 November 2010 at Julian’s Primary School, 226 Leigham Court Road SW16 2RB
