Free schools

With the deadline for the next round of applications for free schools fast approaching, I can’t help wondering. Free from what? From government interference? Pushy parents? Anxiety about dry rot? You imagine Animal Farm all over again  –  overthrowing one system only to be faced by something entirely similar.

Having said that, I am seriously beginning to wonder whether a new campaign in Fitton might be in order. As you know, we managed to completely revolutionise St Jude’s PTA (please see ‘The Handbook’ above). What’s to stop us setting up a whole new school?

Free schools often seem to have a theme, like religion or army drill or Latin-for-all. How about the Fitton Rose School?

A love of gardening should be instilled at an early age.
