A private school in Kings Langley which closed recently will not be reopening under a new name.
Parents of students at the fateful Rudolf Steiner School, which closed after failing its latest safeguarding report, were contacted to say that Alpha Schools would run a school on the site, with doors opening to students on September 24, but this will not be happening now, and alternative options are being considered.
A spokesperson for the school said: “The trustees have worked incredibly hard to explore whether Alpha would operate a school on our premises but unfortunately this will not proceed at this time.
“We know this will be disappointing but we are clear that it would only be right to go ahead if the terms were appropriate. We are considering alternative Rudolf Steiner School and community projects, some of which were outlined in our email of July 1. This will include other multi-school groups.
“We will embrace these new opportunities to develop a strong and vibrant Steiner-Waldorf offering in a new form.”
Rudolf Steiner School, which suffered years of criticism over its leadership and safeguarding, closed earlier in the summer.
