Marylebone Boys' Free School to continue wandering around North West London

The itinerant Marylebone Boys' Free School is moving again and further away from Marylebone. It is currently sharing a site in the former College of North West London building in Kilburn with Kilburn Grange Primary Free School and will now move to a second site in Brondesbury Park. It will eventually (possibly?) go on to its final site in 2018. Not that the planning application has been submitted and has not yet been approved.

We are delighted to announce that a planning application has been submitted for our second site which will be a brand new, purpose-built modular school building in Brondesbury Park. It’s on the site of the former Swiss Cottage Special School located on Brondesbury Park between The Avenue and Christchurch Avenue.

Although the location is not as close to our final site as we might have wished, we are delighted that it is on a plot which allows for modular construction (which is quick) and that there is good outside space on site and nearby.

There are good transport links via buses 98 (bus stop Christchurch) and 206 (bus stops N and S, Brondesbury Park/The Avenue), Queens Park station on the Bakerloo Line, and Brondesbury Park station on the London Overground.

This site has been planned so that if there are delays to our permanent site – which now looks certain not to be ready in time for September 2017 but will be completed during the school year 2017-18 – four year groups can be accommodated at Brondesbury Park.

Can't they find a suitable abandoned office building or build a lego shack on a roundabout?
