Carew Academy will be closed to students on Thursday 5th and Friday 6th December, due to a gas leak on Church Road. This means we have no heating or hot water on site and we are unable to cook. We plan to reopen on Monday 9th December. Further details will be provided on the website, by e-mail and by text message.

Building and Planning

The Futures Academy Free School would be a 5-19, co-educational special school with 246 places for children and young people who have additional and complex learning needs in the Sutton, South London and South East region. This school would replace the current school, Carew Academy. 

Planning Consultation

A site at Sheen Way has been allocated in the Sutton Local Plan (2018) for a Special Education Needs School for children with autistic spectrum disorder and/or moderate learning difficulties, i.e. The Futures Academy.

A planning application, on behalf of the Department for Education, was submitted to the London Borough of Sutton in Summer 2019. Further details about the proposed building will be available on the planning portal of Sutton Council’s website.

A drop in exhibition at The Cricket Centre, Plough Lane, took place on 25 April 2019 between 4.00pm and 8.00pm. Please see below images and information presented at the event.
