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

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.

We are extremely proud to work with our partner school Holy Trinity. The school offers a warm, welcoming and nurturing environment in which to learn, which we hope to recreate at St Jérôme. They are a Christian school that works in close partnership with their local church Holy Trinity Church to serve our local community.

Holy Trinity are constantly striving to provide the highest quality education for all their children. They are passionate about engaging with their children in a broad, challenging and creative curriculum that inspires those children to want to learn more and prepares them fully for the challenges and opportunities they will face when they leave the school.

We will continue to work closely with Holy Trinity in the year to come and hope to bring the successes of this school to our new school serving the people of Harrow.

As a Church of England school Holy Trinity as well as having an OFSTED inspection will also have a Diocesan inspection. Their latest inspection report can be viewed here. Read the report here.

 

L’Ecole Anglicane Holy Trinity à Northwood

Nous sommes très fiers de notre partenaire, l’école de Holy Trinity. Cette école offre un environnement accueillant, chaleureux et stimulant propice à l’apprentissage et que nous espérons recréer à St Jérôme. C’est une école chrétienne qui travaille en collaboration avec l’église proche, Holy Trinity, pour servir la communauté locale.
L’école de Holy Trinity s’efforce constamment d’offrir une éducation de qualité à tous ses élèves. Les enseignants s’impliquent à faire partager aux enfants un programme éducatif ambitieux, stimulant et créatif qui les inspire à apprendre plus et les prépare pleinement pour les défis et les opportunités auxquels ils devront faire face lorsqu’ils quitteront l’école.
Nous continuerons de travailler en partenariat avec Holy Trinity pour les années à venir et espérons pouvoir faire profiter de ses succès à notre nouvelle école dans le but de servir la communauté de Harrow.
En tant qu’église anglicane Holy Trinity a une inspection OFSTED mais aussi une inspection du diocèse. Vous pouvez télécharger ici le récent rapport sur cette inspection.

Harrow School

Harrow School

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 Sports Days.

Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics at Cambridge University

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.

You may already be aware that St. Jérôme School has secured a long-term research partnership with the Cambridge University Bilingual Network. We know this partnership will help us to make sure that we are always offering the very best to our children, and we are very excited to announce that the Cambridge University Bilingual Network is launching its first piece of academic research with and for St. Jérôme School. This is the first stage of our long-term research partnership and we would love you to take part.

By completing the survey you will be contributing to ongoing research into bilingual education. All data will be analysed by researchers at Cambridge University and all individual survey responses will remain confidential. The research findings and conclusions will be shared with St. Jérôme School before the school opens and this feedback will be invaluable in helping us with our planning, to make sure that every child makes good progress and benefits from the bilingual environment. The researchers are interested in hearing from a wide range of parents: those who have already applied for a place at the school, those who are considering applying for a place in the future, and those who have a more general interest in bilingual education – so please feel free to forward this newsletter and the link to the survey to anyone you know who has young children.

The survey will take about 15 minutes. Thank you for your help.
