Exciting News!

Today the Department for Education has named Helena Romanes School as one of only 61 confirmed projects in the school rebuilding programme.  Saffron Academy Trust nominated HRS for this programme earlier in the year.  This means that HRS will undergo significant building works funded by the Government. 

We are in the process of negotiating whether these will be on the current Parsonage Downs site or can be transferred to the all-through school rebuild project, which is planned for Butleys Lane (on the western side of Dunmow, near the Tesco store).

Either way, this new capital investment will transform the experience of young people at HRS and comes at the perfect time as Catherine Davis takes over at the helm as Executive Headteacher.

It is wonderful to have such good news to share with you so close to the end of a busy term.
