new state of the art senior school and Sixth Form building

 A leading provider in the independent education sector, Fulham School (@fulham_school), has unveiled its new state of the art, Jane Emmett Building in Chesilton Road, London, hosting students from Year nine and upwards. Fulham School is part of Inspired, the leading global group of premium schools educating over 50,000 students on five continents.

Launched in the school’s 25th anniversary year, the new facility is also set to cater for its first-ever Sixth Form provision from September 2021 and will welcome existing students on 8th March when schools can re-open their doors again following the easing of COVID-19 lockdown restrictions.

The building has been aptly named after the founder of Fulham School, Jane Emmett, who is still actively involved in school life and sits as a Governor on the school’s board.

The light and airy site offers a range of integrated facilities to provide the best environment for learning and personal development as schools begin to make cautious preparations for a return to the classroom.

The new features include lighting that gives optimum intensity levels for the classroom and colour schemes that instil a positive, calming and homely environment, as well as supporting alertness and creativity. There is also acoustic treatment in place to provide further clarity in the space, ergonomically designed furniture both inside and outside the classroom, and numerous areas for independent study that offers a more mature style of learning for Years nine to 13.

Located in a residential street but close to the vibrant shops and cafes of Fulham Road, students will be able to use the surrounding amenities during lunch breaks and after school, as well as take advantage of the additional sports and exercise options available, such as rowing on the Thames, cycle studios, climbing walls and access to Fulham School’s football and rugby fields.

Maintaining its commitment to provide a rich and rewarding learning experience, Fulham School will offer its Sixth Form students the International Baccalaureate (IB). This programme is widely credited for fully equipping students for life at university and advancing important skills, such as critical thinking and community engagement. Almost 90% of students at other Inspired schools have so far been awarded their first place of university choice under the IB programme. In addition, 32% of these institutions were leading Russell Group or Ivy League Universities.

Chris Cockerill, Head of Fulham Senior said:

“Every detail of Jane Emmett Building has been meticulously designed to create an elevated learning environment for our students in Years nine and above as they become more independent. Despite the challenges presented by opening a new school building in the middle of a pandemic, I’m extremely proud that when our students return on the 8th March, they’ll be able to jump straight back into physical learning in a new, state of the art facility.

“We’re also very excited to welcome our Sixth Form students here in September. Our fantastic location means London will become an extension of the classroom, enabling students to begin experiencing the excitement and independence that life as a University undergraduate can offer, with nearby libraries, green spaces and cafes – all rich in culture and diversity. The IB programme will also provide them with a well-rounded education that encourages them to be enquiring, principled and global thinkers.”

Nadim Nsouli, Inspired Founder, Chairman & CEO, said:

After a disruptive year for the education sector globally, it is great to see the opening of the Fulham Senior School’s Jane Emmett Building which will welcome senior school students when the school reopens physically and Sixth Form students in September. I know that the team at Fulham have worked tirelessly to bring this new Senior School facility to life, which will deliver an engaging and elevated learning experience for its students.

“I’m also pleased that Fulham Sixth Formers will be joining 18 other Inspired Schools in undertaking the IB programme, which has given so many of our students an enriched suite of skills in critical thinking and collaboration, essential for success in pursuing their ambitions whatever they might be, after their school education. Inspired has some of the highest performing IB schools globally and we expect Fulham School to become one such school.”

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.


We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.


FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
