Marylebone Boys’ School has announced today it will be located at the building in Priory Park Road, which was once used as a campus for the College of North West London.

The news will bring an end to speculation that Gladstone Free School will open on the site.

Gladstone had previously shown interested in opening on the former playing field of William Gladstone Secondary School which was demolished in 1998.

But the Brent Council owned site is Metropolitan Open Land and has same level of protection as the Metropolitan Green Belt in terms of development.

Residents vehemently objected to the plans and launched a petition against the proposals.

The school is now looking for another site.

Marylebone Boys’ School, which will open in September, are currently looking for a permanent site in Westminster.
