Cumbria Academy for Autism is a brand new, aspirational special free-school.
It will serve the boroughs of Allerdale and Copeland in West Cumbria, providing a unique educational experience for 56 students between the ages of 4 to 19 years old. We will deliver high quality education and intervention in a learning environment which will enable children to achieve their full potential in their future lives. We are passionate about improving the life chances of autistic children and young people in West Cumbria. After three years of planning and applications we have now been given approval by the DfE, with local authority support, to open in September 2019.
