Find Out About New Earlsfield School

A chance for local parents to meet the team

Floreat Wandsworth, the new primary school currently being built in Earlsfield, has arranged a series of dates for local parents and families to meet the team behind the school.

The new Floreat school is currently being built

All local parents interested in the school are invited to come along, learn more about it and chat to the new Executive Principal, Paul Campbell.

Building work is progressing on the new 420-pupil academy on the site of the former Atheldene Centre in Garratt Lane, Earlsfield and it is expected to open its doors to pupils in September 2015. It will be open to pupils of all backgrounds and abilities. Parents will need to apply for a place at this, or any other, primary school by January 15th.  

Floreat is an educational charity that says it places emphasis on developing children’s character strengths as well as their academic knowledge.

Paul Campbell has already been appointed. He said: “I can think of nothing more exciting than the opportunity to build a school from the ground up, in a vibrant community where children and their families have high aspirations for the future.”

Floreat is one of several new schools that will help meet the ever-increasing need for places in the borough. Three new free schools have opened in Tooting, Balham and Roehampton and a new school will be built on the former Putney Hospital site.

Over the past three years 25 new reception classes have been added at primary schools across Wandsworth and extra classes have opened at four other primaries this month.

The information sessions will be held in the Anchor Church Centre, 273 Garratt Lane, next to where the new school is being built.

The sessions will be on the following dates:

  • Monday 29th September at 9am
  • Monday 20th October at 6pm
  • Monday 10th November at 9am
  • Monday 1st December at 6pm
