Free Schools

The Special Partnership Trust are delighted that we have been successful in our application to open a Free School in Bodmin and in Plymouth.  The opening dates are February 2023 for Bodmin Free School and a provisional opening of 2024 for Plymouth Free School.
The initial meeting with the DfE has been held and the SPT are currently working closely with the LA and research partners on the curriculum offer and with the DfE on building design and school site layout for Bodmin Free School.  The SPT are building a key stakeholder group to develop the school’s branding and identity, alongside continuing to develop relationships with local community partners.

The Bodmin Free School Project Management Group has begun to meet to discuss and populate the Project Plan and identify key milestone dates.  Work is also underway on developing each of the workstreams.


The Project Lead is Andy Wadsworth -
