One step closer!

We are delighted to let you know that the Department for Education (DfE) has invited us to meet with them to determine whether we will be given the green light to open The Sheriff School.

Being shortlisted for interview by the DfE is a major step forward for the project as it is the next stage of the process. We’re looking forward to the opportunity to discuss our plans in depth and demonstrate our vision, motivation, and ability to run a successful 11-18 secondary school in Nuneaton.

The final decision is expected in the spring and we will let you know as soon as we hear the outcome!

We are absolutely thrilled with the high level of support shown by the local community for The Sheriff School. As with successful applications for all new free schools, in order for us to be successful at the next stage, we will need to show that we have continued and growing support from parents and the wider community.

If you haven’t already done so, please complete the short form to help shape our vision for The Sheriff School to the needs and ambitions of the community it will serve.

Thank you

Application submitted!

We are delighted to confirm that our application to open The Sheriff School has been submitted to the Department for Education.

We are now waiting to hear whether we have been shortlisted for an interview, which is the next stage of the process and an opportunity to discuss our proposal in depth.

We would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who has taken the time to give feedback on our plans and help shape the vision for the school. We’ll keep you updated!

Out and about in Nuneaton

Thank you to all the parents and members of the local community we have met in Nuneaton over the past few days. It has been great to share our plans for The Sheriff School with so many people who both recognise the need for a high-quality secondary school with a Mathematics and Computing specialism and like what we have to say about what we’re planning.

We’ll continue to be out and about in Nuneaton and the surrounding areas over the next few days sharing our plans for The Sheriff School ahead of submitting our application through the Department for Education’s Free Schools Programme early next month.

If you haven’t already done so, please complete the short form to help shape our vision for The Sheriff School to the needs and ambitions of the community it will serve.
