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.

Why is Young People’s 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 Hillingdon and North West London region and to replace the current school building which is not fit for purpose, thereby providing support for a broader range of students who require specialist provision.

YPA has a good understanding and built a rapport with my son. He has been happy and well cared for to the point where he has met his full potential and thrived. The right balance and structure has provided for my son’s complex needs. Thank you for your continuous support.  Parent
