Harperbury School


Foreword by Sara L’Efquihi, Chair of Governors

Having worked hard for the past four years on plans to open the secondary school our area so deserves, the Harperbury Free School Trust is delighted to be able to launch its public consultation.

We believe that we are proposing a truly unique educational offer, giving students the opportunity to put their theoretical studies into practical work-based contexts, making links between subjects and becoming well-rounded citizens of the 21st Century with an excellent attitude toward learning.

We have now secured a site which we feel will be an ideal setting for the community hub and outstanding centre of learning we intend Harperbury to become.

We welcome the opportunity to formally gather the views and opinions of all our stakeholders and look forward to demonstrating to the Department for Education the high levels of support we have experienced during our many public meetings and open events.

Getting involved

As well as on-going engagement through our website, Facebook page, newsletter and regular update events we would like to hear from all stakeholders in the coming weeks to help inform the Secretary of State for Education’s decision on whether to enter into a Funding Agreement with Harperbury Free School. We will record all views that are shared with us during the formal consultation window; these will be reviewed, analysed and consolidated into a final report that will be available on our website.
