All Change at Harrow Bilingual School

school_expansionThose of you that follow us on Facebook will have seen the discussions that we have been having about the name of our school and we would like to take this opportunity to bring you up-to-date.

We were given permission from the DfE to proceed toward opening our school on 30 September 2014, which is International Translators Day, and it is on this date the feast of St Jérôme is celebrated. St Jérôme is the patron saint of translators, but also the patron saint of librarians, scripture scholars and students.

Therefore after careful consideration and a lot of discussion and we would like to announce a new name for our school:

St Jérôme Church of England Bilingual School

We have used the French ‘spelling’ of Jerome and as we are a Church of England school, although welcoming to children and families of all faiths and none, we felt it was important to also include this in our name.

This is not to say we won’t be based in Harrow. We know that Harrow has a huge need to primary school places and we are determined to try and address that need with our new school.

Parents that have already applied for a place at Harrow Bilingual Primary School do not need to apply again to the school now we have changed our name.

Parents should have received an invitation via email to visit our sister school Holy Trinity CE Primary School in Northwood. If you haven’t yet received your invitation email Stuart at harrowbilingualprimary@gmail.com.

Our final planned open day for 2014 will be held in the Old Harrovian Room, War Memorial Building, Harrow School on Saturday 22 November. The event starts at 1.30pm with the main presentation at 1.45pm. This is your opportunity to hear about our plans for the new school and put any question that you may have to the team.

This promises to be one of our most popular events, so do make sure that you register, to give us a good idea of how many people to expect.
