In 2003 a group of South London parents joined together to campaign for a new secondary school. They wanted a school which was rooted in their local community and which welcomed and valued every local child – regardless of their abilities or needs.

The vision was to empower parents to support their own child’s education, to play a key role in supporting and influencing the school’s strategy and direction and also to contribute their own skills and talents to broaden and enrich students’ experiences.

This dream has been realised in the creation of The Elmgreen School – the first parent-promoted school in Britain. The Elmgreen School is unique – it is not a “Free School” but a maintained school in which the parents work in partnership with the local authority and the school staff to ensure that each student achieves his or her full potential.
