A New 210 Place Primary School (with co-located 56 place nursery) on The St Luke's Park Development, Runwell, Essex
On 22 March 2021, Essex County Council published a specification inviting proposals to sponsor a new Primary Free School in new buildings on the St Luke's Park Development, Runwell, Wickford, with a planned opening date of September 2022. We would therefore like to hear from providers who can demonstrate their passion and ability to achieve high standards, performance and outcomes for all children within the primary school system (and early years if applicable). A specification inviting proposals is now available on the County Council's website, and can be accessed by visiting
