Eden Project

A school could open at the Eden Project.

Plans have been revealed to relocate Roselyon from Par to the biomes.

That is if it wins the right to become a free school and take on more pupils.

It means hundreds could end up having lessons there.

Eden founder Sir Tim Smit tells the Westcountry Tonight he is backing the idea, he said: "One of the things that I'm really passionate about is the chance to offer what used to be private school quality education quality to young people who can't afford it.

"We have a lot of school groups here, we've had 500,000 school children here and most of the schools in Cornwall have been here, we've been thinking about this sort of thing for a while and when we were approached by Roselyon we thought we would have a serious look at it."
