The Diocese of London Board for Schools
The London Diocesan Board for Schools is renowned for opening and maintaining successful Church of England Schools. All their new schools have been well received by Ofsted at their first inspection and they have one of the most experienced project management teams for setting up new schools in London.
The Church of England has established and maintained schools for the people of London for hundreds of years. In 1924, the London Diocesan Board for Schools was set up to be the educational arm of the London Diocese. With 90 years of experience, running over 150 schools in London’s local authorities, our schools have successfully provided excellent education to a range of communities of different faiths, including schools where the majority of children come from families of other faiths, or none. All children, of all backgrounds are welcome.
Holy Trinity CE Primary School, Northwood
Our Executive Headteacher Daniel Norris has been Headteacher at Holy Trinity for the last seven years.
Holy Trinity is a mixed, single form entry school that has just received an outstanding SIAMS inspection. Read the report here.
Staff at the school have supported St Jérôme on its journey towards opening. Some of the school staff you will be able to meet at our open days and by talking to them you will get a flavour of what Holy Trinity is like and what St Jérôme will be like, as it will be based on the successes of Holy Trinity.
We may also hold a special open day at Holy Trinity towards the end of the year, so do check our Open Day page for information about that.
Harrow is one of Britain’s leading independent schools, one of a very few schools still specialising in providing a high quality boarding school education for boys. Founded in 1572 under a Royal Charter granted by Elizabeth I it has been providing education to boys for over 400 years.
Two members of our Governing Body work at Harrow School and we have been delighted with the school’s efforts to support St Jérôme, by allowing us to use their facilities to hold our Open Days.
Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics at Cambridge University
The Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics was created on 1 August 2011 by merging the former Department of Linguistics and the Research Centre for English and Applied Linguistics. The Department is part of the Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages.
The Department pursues an interdisciplinary approach to theoretical and applied linguistics and avoids uncritical adherence to particular views and theories. Building on the strengths of the previous institutions, the new department covers a comprehensive range of the language sciences and offers excellent theoretical and empirical research in a broad spread of fields from historical linguistics and comparative syntax to language processing and computational linguistics.
We have been delighted with the support they have given to us in exploring bilingualism for primary school children. We will continue to work with the department to share ideas and best practice as St Jérôme grows.
We will be working with Eurostar to create an interactive learning experience. Younger children will be able to role play a variety of travel scenarios through their very own Eurostar experience. Older children will have opportunities to extend their learning in science, technology and maths as they solve engineering and maintenance challenges the Eurostar way, in English and French. Children at St Jerome School will have regular access to this unique facility and it will also be available for use by children from other local schools.
