On March 11th 2019, Somerset County Council was notified that its bid to establish a special school should proceed to the next stage of the process – the trust competition stage.
The next step is to advertise the opportunity for potential trusts to apply to establish the new school and we have now published our specification document on this page for potential trusts to consider.
While trusts are more than welcome to contact us to discuss our vision for the school, we plan to hold a stakeholder engagement event in May 2019.
Details of the event and the booking process will be published on this page when they are finalised.
Further guidance on the application process for potential trusts can be found by following this link: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/special-free-school-applications
