The team behind a proposed new primary school in Bromley have been invited to an interview by the Department for Education with the aim of opening in September 2014.
Bromley Bilingual Primary School’s backers, who want to teach children in both English and French, hopes to know the result of their interview by May.
Nathan Hardman, a local parent heading the group, said: “We’re absolutely delighted. Getting an interview means the Government views our project as a strong proposal and will explore with us in depth our vision for the school and how we will implement it.”
The school plans to help address the shortage of primary school places in the borough.
If approved, the school will open its doors to children in Reception, as well as Years 1 and 2, who will not need to speak French before they start.
