In 2016 we were given permission by the DfE to set up a new secondary free school in Grays, to be called Thames Park. The possible sites for this new school are being discussed and agreed by the Local Authority in partnership with LocatED (who are an agency of the Government) and will be proposed to the Trust. Until land is agreed by them, the Trust will continue to prepare the education plan for the new school, wherever it might be built.
The Osborne Co-operative Academy Trust will work in partnership with all stakeholders to identify a viable site for Thames Park Secondary School. Our aspiration is to provide a first-class education for the families of Grays.
