Free schools focus group

Bush Theatre have asked me to publicise a free schools focus group they are holding for local parents on tuesday. With Free Schools likely to be trialled in the Bush ahead of most of the rest of the country this is an apt topic indeed. Here's what Bush Theatre have to say:

As a part of our Autumn season, The Bush will be presenting two new plays, 'The Knowledge' and 'Little Platoons', that explore the education system in Britain -
The second play, 'Little Platoons' by Steve Waters, focuses on schooling in West London and explores the controversial issue of free schools.
Playwright, Steve Waters and Director, Nathan Curry are very interested in speaking to teachers and parents from schools in the local area and will be holding an informal meeting/group discussion on Tuesday 21st September. At this stage we are planning to hold the meeting at around 5pm.
We are keen to hear a range of views about education in West London with a particular focus on the academy and free school programmes and how these may impact your school.
I encourage any teacher/parent who wishes to discuss this proposal further to contact me at the Bush Theatre on 0208 743 3584.

  1. Hi Friend,

    This is really interesting take on the concept. I never thought of it that way. I came across this site recently which I think it will be a great use of new ideas and informations.
