The Fulham Boys School announces extra places for 2015

Families worrying about their secondary school applications received some good news this week as The Fulham Boys School (FBS) announced plans to offer an additional 20 places to boys wanting to enter the school this September.

FBS is part of the pan-London co-ordinated admissions scheme, and parents will be notified by their local authority at the beginning of March which school they have been allocated. FBS had set an upper limit of 120 places for this year, but in light of extra room in the school has decided to increase this to 140.

Headmaster Alun Ebenezer explains: “We’re a new school and know that some prospective parents only found out about our unique educational ethos quite late on in the applications process. We would hate for families that have decided they want our education for their sons to be disappointed, and as we’ve got room this year to increase numbers, we’ve notified our local authority that we are happy to accept an extra 20 boys.”

This will not alter FBS’s pledge to keep class sizes small – no more than 24 – and gives the school the opportunity to push some pupils on at a faster pace by teaching them with the year above, something few secondary schools have the flexibility to do. FBS’s house system will ensure all boys get plenty of time to mix with their age groups.

Notes:

FBS is a Free school, founded by local parents and teachers, with the support of the London Diocesan Board for Schools and the Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.

The school opened on its temporary site at Gibbs Green in September 2014 with its first Year 7 boys. FBS is growing year on year, and will be at full capacity in 2020 with 800 boys. Announcement on the school’s permanent location in the borough is expected shortly.
