Proposal to set up Bexley Secondary free school - theatre school

Urgent !!!! Support needed Please !!!


We are teachers who believe that all children and young people are capable of achieving qualifications and experiencing success but this may not be through the traditional model.  

There are many children who would relish the opportunity to attend a full time theatre school but in this economic climate this is not a viable option and nor is there any such local 'full-time' provision.


We are proposing to open a main stream free school theatre school for secondary school aged children in Bexley - this would provide children with a high quality academic curriculum as well as a high quality vocational dance and drama education - all of which will be delivered by a qualified and experienced team of professionals.


In order to proceed with this application we need to have evidence that there is a demand for such provision. If you feel this in principle this would be something that you would consider for your child would you please be kind enough to sign this petition.


It is essential that you include the following information - otherwise your return cannot be used - YOUR NAME, YOUR POSTCODE, YOUR CHILD'S DATE OF BIRTH, AND EITHER CONFIRM THAT 'BEXLEY THEATRE FREE SCHOOL' WOULD BE YOUR FIRST CHOICE OF SECONDARY SCHOOL OR THAT YOU WOULD BE INTERESTED IN FINDING OUT MORE ABOUT THE SCHOOL. Obviously more weight would be given if people say this will be their first choice of Secondary school for their child. Please also add your e-mail address.


We really appreciate your support with this - please also help us by forwarding on this petition to as many people as possible who have children - ideally children in year 4 and above.


Apologies for the short notice but please ensure that you return the petition by WEDNESDAY 27th  FEBRUARY 2013 in order for us to meet the closing date deadline.


THANK YOU SO MUCH - We hope to be able to give you positive updates as the process progresses.

Best wishes

Jackie & Mick.

We have nothing like that at the moment & The only way we can send our children to theatre school is by paying & some people can't afford the costs So a lot of children who are talented miss out. My daughter is in year 3 & loves acting singing & dancing so for her it would be fantastic to have a choice of that sort of school.
