Cambridge Education appointed to support new Free School
Free Schools are an important part of the government’s policy to support greater freedom and choice in the education system. They are all-ability, state-funded schools, set up in response to parental demand. The most important element of a great education is the quality of teaching and Free Schools will enable excellent teachers to create schools and improve standards for all children, regardless of their background.
Cambridge Education is delighted to have been selected as project management company to support one of the very first Free School projects: King’s Science Academy. Located in the heart of inner-city Bradford, King’s will be a small school, providing high quality, personalised teaching and support so that every one of its students, regardless of background, can achieve his or her full potential. King’s will also concentrate on building the character of its students: the school’s motto is ‘Character and Knowledge’.
Working with and for the free school group (the group of committed people driving the creation of King’s) our role is to co-ordinate the work necessary first to assemble a detailed business case and then, subject to the Secretary of State’s approval, to get ready for opening in September 2011. Aspects to be dealt with include admissions, finance, staff, premises, curriculum, safeguarding and many others. As well as project management support, Cambridge Education will provide expert advice in many of these areas, and co-ordinate inputs from others who need to be involved.
