Last week we achieved a significant milestone in our journey to opening after Lord Nash, the Parliamentary Under Secretary State for Schools gave a green light to our Funding Agreement on the back of detailed plans submitted by the Trust.
The Funding Agreement formalises the contract between the Plymouth School of Creative Arts Trust and the Department for Education. This endorsement from Lord Nash means the Trust can continue to develop plans for a brand new School building in Millbay funded directly by the Department for Education, subject to planning approval.
Offer of Places
We are delighted to have offered our first places in Reception, Year 1 and 2 at Plymouth School of Creative Arts from September 2013. For those parents who applied, we hope you are similarly delighted to receive the offers and will be accepting your places shortly.
Following detailed work with our architects on adapting the Cargo Unit into a Primary School for September, we have decided to reduce our intake to 120 pupils: 60 in Reception, 30 in Year 1 and 30 in Year 2. We believe this is the best way for us to make a strong start for your child and the School this September. Once we move into the new building in September 2014 we will be topping up those years to complete year groups of 60.
This means we only have around 15 places for Reception and Year 2 and only 2 remaining places in Year 1. So please apply now if you haven’t already for your place in September.
