FAQ’s

What is a Free School?

Free schools are independent state-funded schools. They provide a way for groups of parents/carers, teachers, charities, existing schools or other organisations to respond to a need for a new school in their community – whether for extra places, to raise standards or offer choice.  They can be primary, secondary, all-through or 16-19, and can open specifically for children with special educational needs or those who struggle in mainstream schools (alternative provision). Once established, free schools are legally academies so are funded by central government.

More information on Free Schools can be found at www.newschoolsnetwork.org/what-are-free-schools

Why is The Skills Hub being replaced with a Free School?

The Free School is urgently needed to provide additional spaces to support more students with additional needs in Hillingdon and North West London region and to replace the current school building which is not fit for purpose, thereby providing support for a broader range of students who require specialist provision.

Thank you, and God bless you for all the work you have done with my son. It feels like I have my son back.
