Applications are now open for a place at Bromley’s newest primary school, set for its first classes in September next year.

Bromley Bilingual School has 50 reception places and a combined 50 places for Year 1 and Year 2 students.

The new school was approved for opening by the Department of Education in May under the government’s free schools initiative, and will be state funded.

Places will be allocated using two main criteria, including the distance between pupils’ homes and the school, as well as a supervised random selection.

Children will be taught in both English and French at the school, which is still searching for a location within the BR1 postcode area.

Dr Bart Tyszka, a member of the school’s parent group, said: “The Bromley Bilingual School will fill an important gap in primary school languages teaching, parent choice and the ongoing shortage of primary school places in south-east London.

“London is a world city enriched by many cultures and languages and we believe it is crucial to equip more young people for an increasingly globalised world of work and study.”

A parent information meeting is planned for October 19, allowing parents to ask any questions they may have about the school. The meeting will take place at 2pm at the Verral Hall, in Widmore Road, Bromley.

Applications for places close on January 15, 2014 and must be made directly to the school. To apply, visit bbs-cfbt.org.uk.
