At this present time, our aim for the start of term in September is to open on Thursday 3rd September for Lower School students only for a half-day without lunch. On Friday 4th September, we will be opening for all students until 1pm with lunch. For the following week, 7th to 11th September, we will be open for all students with lunch until 1.45pm. We will also not be offering a Breakfast Club for the first half term at least so please ensure students only arrive between 8.45am and 9am.

These arrangements are in place to give new students an opportunity to experience the school whilst it is slightly less busy and to enable us to ensure students stay within their tutor groups for the first week back in small bubbles.

Please make sure to note the earlier finish times and when your child is due to return to school in September. We will be in contact with families again at the end of the Summer Holidays.

Thanks,

Rob Watkins – Principal

Free School

The Futures Academy Free School

The Futures Academy Free School would provide specialist education for 246 children and young people aged 5-19 who have a range of additional learning needs, some of which are complex and may include Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). We intend to open this new co-educational Free School in the London Borough of Sutton during the 2021/22 academic year.

Carew Academy, based in the London Borough of Sutton, currently provides for children and young people with the above profile of need from the ages of 7-18. The intention is to close Carew Academy and to create a new Free School, The Futures Academy, that extends the provision for additional learning needs in the area from infant (Key Stage 1) through to post 16.

We strongly believe that extending the entry in this way would support children with complex profiles of need to achieve more fully as a result of access to specialist intervention and teaching from an early age, continuously through to post 16. This wider age range, together with the increased complexity of need that is already presenting in Carew’s current student body, presents a substantial change in the profile of our existing facilities.

About Orchard Hill College Academy Trust

The Futures Academy would be an important part of an established family of specialist schools and academies that make up Orchard Hill College Academy Trust (OHCAT). OHCAT is a ‘family’ of schools, currently comprised of 14 special academies across London, Surrey, Sussex and Berkshire.

OHCAT was established in 2013 by Orchard Hill College(OHC) to share its expertise and provide services and support to specialist schools. Together, Orchard Hill College & Academy Trust (OHC&AT) provides for over 1500 pupils and students from nursery through to further education and into adulthood.

All of us at OHC&AT are committed to realising the potential of our pupils and students and we work together to ensure they achieve their very best in their local communities.

Carew is an amazing school for our son, he now shines academically and his social skills are outstanding since being part of Carew.  Most of all they understand his needs and support him daily.
