No agreement made for new school

A new school will not open on the Rudolf Steiner School (RSSKL) site.

The private school, which announced in June that it would be closing, had been in negotiations with Alpha to open a new school on the same Kings Langley site in September, for the new school term.

But following discussion between RSSKL and Alpha, RSSKL has revealed that a new school will not go ahead, at this time.

A spokesman 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 RSSKL and community projects, some of which were outlined in our email on 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.”

RSSKL has been threatened with closure for months after a series of Ofsted inspections found that pupils were “at risk”.

It was announced in June that the school was to close, and despite attempts to keep it open, they were unable to find any insurers to keep the school operating from September.
