Free School Application to open a new Primary Free School in Nottingham
In support of the Regeneration Project and new housing developments in the Trent Basin, Waterside area of Nottingham, Greenwood Academies Trust have submitted an application to the Department for Education to propose the opening of a new Primary Academy as part of the Free School application process. This would be a 420 place Primary Academy with a 60 place Nursery which we would plan to open in September 2021.
The Trust has support from Nottingham City Council to open a new Primary Academy to meet the future need for school places in the area. If this proposal is approved, we will work with the Local Authority to identify a suitable site for the new Academy.
We are pleased that we are in a position as a Trust to consider adding more schools to our primary portfolio; this is also a reflection of the improvements we continue to make in outcomes in progress and attainment at all levels within the Trust.
The DFE will announce all successful applications in spring 2019
