We write to inform you that, with effect from 20th December 2019, DARE will be relocating to Kingsbury High School, Bacon Lane, Kingsbury London NW9 9AT, which is just 3 minutes’ drive from The Village School.
While we understand and appreciate the inconveniences that this decision might have caused, we believe it is important at the same time that we let you know those contributing factors that informed this necessary yet reluctant decision.
The main reason why this relocation is necessary is the increased in the number of children and young people that we cater for. Presently, 3 halls are being used at the village school, but now, a fourth one is required and our current arrangement with The Village Schools means we can no longer hire classrooms. Furthermore, access to some of the resources we have been using since the inception of DARE i.e. Soft playroom, sensory room etc. have also been withdrawn and unfortunately, we will no longer be able to offer swimming as one of our activities.
May we also use this opportunity to express how deeply sorry we are for informing you this late, it was due to the fact that we just received a confirmatory message from Kingsbury High School yesterday.
As you are aware, our staff members are well trained and very experienced, and they will be doing their utmost best to make sure your children are well settled into their new environment without any problems. We assure you that D.A.R.E will continue to provide you with the same quality of service you have come to expect.
If you have any questions or require additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
