The deadline for commenting on moving residents of Knights Hill & Gipsy Hill wards into the east part of Croydon North constituency currently represented by Steve Reed MP is 2nd August 2021. See our post 17/6/21
There is a chance to see the building plans for the new Gipsy Hill secondary school and rebuilt primary school at Glenbrook before the planning application is submitted. Drop in to Glenbrook school in Clarence Avenue SW4 8LD this Friday 10th March between 3.30pm and 8pm or on Saturday 11 March between 10am and 1pm .
The government has approved plans for the Gipsy Hill secondary free school project to go forward to the next stage and seek a site in the West Norwood area.
The new school is now planned to open in September 2017 – so children starting year 5 primary in September 2015 would be the first intake for the new school. The school will have 8 forms of entry (240 children per year). The government requires all new state schools to be free schools – so they are independent of the local council. The new Gipsy Hill secondary school will be sponsored by the Gipsy Hill Federation Trust.
Kingswood, Elm Wood, Paxton, Fenstanton, Crawford and Glenbrook schools are community schools run by the local council and together form the Gipsy Hill Federation with Sir Craig Tunstall as the executive head teacher.
