Lime Academy Ridgeway application success

We are delighted to announce that our free school application for a new primary school in Enfield has been approved by the Department of Education to enter the pre-opening phase. The news was made public on 12th July. This is the result of a rigorous process of testing of ourselves as a suitable provider and of the details of our proposal, so it’s a great success.

The school is planned to meet the urgent need for extra school places in the Enfield Chase area – our anticipated site is as part of the redevelopment of the Chase Farm Hospital site.

Our team is in place to now begin the detailed planning for the opening of the school. This includes working closely with the London Borough of Enfield on education and admissions matters, and with the Education Funding Agency on designing and building the school.

The process will include a second full consultation process on full details of the new school. We are working towards opening in September 2017 with a nursery class and reception classes, and look forward to developing Lime Academy Ridgeway within the local family of schools and our own Lime Trust.
