A private school in Kings Langley which announced it was closing this summer after suffering years of criticism over its leadership and safeguarding of children could reopen in September
Rudolf Steiner School looked certain to be closing its doors for good following a meeting with the Department for Education after failing its latest safeguarding report, but a reprieve looks likely, reforming potentially with the same staff, management and students.
Parents have been contacted recently to say that Alpha Schools will run a school on the site, with doors opening to students from September 24, with former Rudolf Steiner School staff and the same curriculum being involved.
A school spokesperson said: “We are in discussions with Alpha regarding opening a new Steiner school on the site of the Rudolf Steiner School in Kings Langley. We are very grateful to everyone for their support and encouragement as we progress this.
“As soon as there is further progress, we will update the school community, as we have done throughout this period of change, so that everyone continues to be fully informed.”
Alpha Schools Ltd was founded eight years ago and is believed to currently own eight schools across the UK.
