Earlsfield's Floreat Academy Joins GFL Schools

Floreat Education Trust, which was founded by David Cameron's former Downing Street aide James O'Shaughnessy, has announced that the Floreat Academy in Wandsworth is to join another academy Trust.

Along with Floreat Montague Park in Wokingham, Floreat Wandsworth in Garratt Lane is to join GFL Schools this September.

Chief Executive of Floreat Academies, Janet Hilary, said that the move is "great news" as GFL will retain the two school's names and identities.

GFL Schools run over 30 academies through South East England, and its Chief Executive Jon Chaloner said, "Fundamental to our ethos is the desire to see our children flourish...we look forward to working with both schools and to ensure their children and staff grow and flourish with us."

Floreat Wandsworth opened nearly four years ago in a newly built building (pictured left) on the site of the former Atheldene Centre in Garratt Lane, Earlsfield. The new primary school opened for pupils of "all backgrounds and abilities".
