Statement on Behalf of the Phoenix Free School of Oldham

 

“We regret to confirm that the Department for Education has withdrawn funding for Phoenix Free School of Oldham and it will not open this September. 

We deeply appreciate the support we have received from everyone who has worked hard to make this project a success and we apologise to the parents and pupils who will inevitably be disappointed.

Many people were attracted to the Phoenix concept and we hope to see other Free Schools coming into being with a similar ethos.”
