Success for Solihull’s special free school bid
March 13, 2019
Solihull Council has been given the green light by the Department for Education to establish a special free school to support children with autism.
The new school, which is likely to be open in two years, will have up to 100 places for children and young people with autism aged between 7 and 16 years old. The Council’s preferred option is for a dual site school with locations in both the north and south of Solihull.
It will provide an outstanding education for pupils attending the school together with support for children with autism at mainstream schools through an assessment centre based at the new site.
We are asking fro proposals from multi-academy trusts to work with us on the free school. To find out more, please select Solihull Council’s proposed special free school.
