|Ark Conway School Holds Drop-in Sessions|
Local residents invited to view designs for new building
Ark Conway Primary Academy, the new free school for four to 11 year-olds which is due to open its doors in September, is inviting local residents to two drop-in sessions at the former Wormholt Library in Hemlock Road.
The sessions are on Monday June 13 from 6.30pm - 7.30pm and Wednesday June 15 from noon - 1pm.
At the sessions, local people will be able to view the plans for the school's new building and offer their feedback.
Ark Conway is one of three free schools which have been given the go ahead by the government to open in our borough.
West London Free School, a secondary which promises to offer a "classical curriculum" is also due to open in September. It will be housed in Cambridge School in Cambridge Grove, Hammersmith until its permanent home in Palingswick House is ready for use.
These moves have proved controversial, as Palingswick House has until now housed over 20 voluntary and community groups, who will now be forced to move to other premises. The Cambridge Grove premises meanwhile have been home to a special school for children with special education needs, but in September this school will move to the Bryony Centre, close to Phoenix High School.
Rivendale Primary School was also given the go ahead by the government. The school is planned for opening in September 2012, but at this stage is still hunting for suitable premises in the area.
