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.

FAQs

What is a Free School?

Free schools are independent state-funded schools. They provide a way for groups of parents/carers, teachers, charities, existing schools or other organisations to respond to a need for a new school in their community – whether for extra places, to raise standards or offer choice.  They can be primary, secondary, all-through or 16-19, and can open specifically for children with special educational needs or those who struggle in mainstream schools (alternative provision). Once established, free schools are legally academies so are funded by central government.

More information on Free Schools can be found at www.newschoolsnetwork.org/what-are-free-schools

Why is Carew Academy being replaced with a Free School?

The Free School is urgently needed to provide additional spaces to support more students with additional needs in Sutton and to replace the current Carew Academy building which is not fit for purpose, thereby providing support for a broader range of students who require specialist provision.

The school is making such a difference to the lives of our young people. I am immensely proud of all that you are achieving.

Cllr Ruth Dombey, Leader of Sutton Council
