Can you help name a new secondary school?

The Twyford CE Academies Trust, the group behind a new high school due to open in September 2016 is appealing to the Ealing community.

Currently using the working title North Twyford CofE High School, the Trust have already held a number of public meeting and have a reference group that meet regularly.

Although the school will have much in common with its two sister schools Twyford CE High School and William Perkin CE High School,   a strongly academic curriculum and the same exceptional systems for pastoral care, and wider learning – it will also have its own unique identity.

It will serve the communities of North / Central Ealing and will inherit curriculum strengths in Music and Languages. Its very distinctive feature is a focus of moral philosophy and social ethics . It is also planned to have specialist vocational training facilities in food and catering.

Alice Hudson, Executive Headteacher said:

“We were delighted to receive the news in October that the Trust’s bid for a new school for Ealing Central / Acton had been successful.  Subsequent feedback from the Department for Education indicated that our track record at Twyford CE High School and particularly at William Perkin CE High School had stood us in very good stead in the evaluation process.” 

“We have set ourselves a deadline of aiming to open North Twyford CE High School (the school’s short term working title) in September 2016 and are working at a pace to try and realise this.”
“We have also had the benefit of a very engaged reference group with representation from many of the local primary schools and faith communities. This group has met every six weeks as a sounding board for local opinion and a means of communicating to the local community.”

“The proposer group and I look forward to working further with the Department for Education, the Education Funding Agency, Ealing Council, our reference group and the local community as the project progresses.” 

“From our point of view, the recent experience of launching a brand new school, which is already heavily over-subscribed on first choice places, can only help us in this process.”

The school is being set up with the support of London Diocesan Board for Schools who have an excellent track record for setting up successful, popular new Church of England Schools.

Some ideas which have already been received by the group, these focus either on location or famous Ealing residents. The competition is open to all and you can enter and find out more about the school by visiting the website.
