‘Creative Arts Academy’ plan gets Government approval

The Ebor Academy Trust’s bid to establish a ‘Creative Arts Academy’ free school in York has been approved by Government, it was announced today.

When the Ebor Academy Trust announced its plans, it identified the council-owned former Askham Bar Park & Ride site as a possible location for the proposed new primary school, which would serve the whole city. In the recently-published Local Plan proposals, the council has earmarked that land for housing.

The Ebor Academy Trust say that they will now work closely with City of York Council to secure a site, and are aiming for a September 2017 opening.

    Hi How can a school be built on this site. I travel on a bus at 4.20 Monday to Friday and am regularly stuck at the cross keys taking around 15 minutes to get to the tesco roundabout When the races are on Tadcaster road, woodthorpe will become a no go area. On a morning getting along Moor Lane is a disaster. The college and the races already create a bottleneck we do not need another one with a school. We do not need more houses or more schools this side of York.
