Congratulations to Southwark Free School


Earlier this week, the Department for Education announced it had approved the application for Southwark Free School.  Though Shaftesbury has no longer has any formal involvement in the project, our lead Partner, Patrick Shine, chairs the academy trust on a pro bono basis. Due to open in September 2012, this new primary school, based near Borough Market, will eventually provide high quality state education for 480 local children. The Shaftesbury Partnership is delighted that this application has been successful, and wishes the Southwark Free School team many congratulations, particularly as the hard work now really begins!
