A free school in Radlett which was meant to open in September will hold an informal meeting later this month.

Harperbury Free School was due to open this September in the former Harperbury Hospital in Harpers Lane.

However schools’ minister Lord Nash announced in February the Department for Education (DoE) had failed to secure the site in time, meaning its opening would be delayed for a year.

The meeting will be for parents who applied for places this year. It will take place at the Red Lion, Watling Street, Radlett from 6pm on Thursday, May 22. Those wishing to attend should email office@harperbury.org.uk
