Advertising the opportunity for potential trusts to apply to establish the new school
On 11 March 2019, we were notified that our bid to establish a special school should proceed to the next stage of the process – the trust competition stage.
The next step was to advertise the opportunity for potential trusts to apply to establish the new school and we have published our specification document on this page for potential trusts to consider.
Having held a successful stakeholder engagement event at Dillington House, Ilminster, on Tuesday 21 May 2019 we have now updated this page to enable Trusts to contact us for information to support their applications.
To ensure a fair and open process, each question and answer will be recorded in a document made available from this page – updated 11 June 2019.
If you have a question for the local authority in relation to your application please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond as quickly as possible.
You can find further guidance on the application process for potential trusts.
