Welcome to The SASH School
Many parents have expressed an interest in applying to the school.
It is planned to open the school in September 2014 for year 7 pupils only so that children who are in Year 5 or below now will be the right age to apply.
Application will be through the Local Authority’s coordinated admissions arrangements which require all parents to complete a Common Application Form (CAF) provided by the Local Authority.
Copies of the form will be available online from September 2013 at: www.slough.gov.uk/admissions .
The deadline for all applications will be 31st October 2013.
To view the Draft Admissions Policy for the school, please click on the link at the foot of this page or go to the Admissions page.
We are at the ‘pre-opening stage’ and the process is forging ahead with the Headteachers in discussion with the Department for Education to develop plans. The location of the school has yet to be confirmed and discussions are taking place with the Education Funding Agency to progress this as soon as possible.
To register your support or to ask to be kept updated please go to the Consultation page on this website or contact us by email on: information@SASHeducation.co.uk.
We will keep this website updated as plans develop so do watch this space!
The Headteachers of all thirteen secondary schools in Slough, both all ability and grammar, are working together to set up the free school, bringing together all that is best in education in Slough.
A free school is an all-ability state-funded school set up in response to what local people say they want and need in order to improve education for children in their community.
The SASH School will provide an innovative curriculum responsive to the employment needs of the business community and play an important part in local regeneration.
There is a real need for extra secondary school places in the area over the next ten years. The existing secondary schools will not be able to provide enough additional places. The SASH School, when full, will provide an extra 900 secondary school places plus a sixth form. The school will include a facility for young people who need additional support learning.
