The Phoenix Free School of Oldham will open in September 2014
The Department for Education and the Secretary of State have successfully approved our application to open The Phoenix Free School in Oldham.
We have been working quietly behind the scenes since 2012. We also have some impressive new supporters with extensive experience in education.
Our game plan remains the same: We are still committed to creating a school that will combine all the best features of a traditional grammar school or an independent school with the military virtues of Courage, Discipline, Respect for Others, Integrity, Loyalty, and Selfless Commitment.
But most importantly, our pupils will learn to respect adults, each other, and themselves. We know that they will leave Phoenix with the enthusiasm and attitudes they will need to succeed in whatever life they choose to lead. We expect at least 75% of our pupils to reach EBacc standards—the minimum requirement at good universities.
Thank you to everyone who has worked relentlessly to make this dream a reality.
Together, we can make Oldham great again!
