A sanctuary for learning - with Latin motto

15th October 2010 at 01:00

If I were to sponsor a new free school I would want it to meet Michael Gove's criteria ("Free schools can open in disused DfE buildings", October 8). My school would be sited in a DfE building, making good use of what was previously a waste of space. It would be a daily reminder to the DfE of its core mission and, to cap it all, it would have a Latin tag to encourage aspiring parents to enrol their children. It would be in the centre of the DfE's operation in Sanctuary Buildings. I propose to call it the Atrium Academy. Any takers?
