Free School approvals – great news for Yavneh College

Visualisation of Yavneh Primary School
News this week that Yavneh College in Borehamwood has won approval for the construction of a junior school next door to the existing secondary school – a project that began as a conventional bid for local authority support but concludes as a Free School bid. The full story’s in the JC. In linked news, the release of the latest list of approvals confirms what we’d already been told back in April – that Harperbury has not won approval, putting the start date for the school hoping to open in Harper Lane back to 2017 at the earliest.
