Parents in north Cornwall are getting a first look at a new free school.

 

The Route 39 Academy has got permission to open near Bucks Cross next September.

 

It will mean children living on the Duchy border do not have to travel so far to get to school. 

 

Anna Ward said they want to make education relevant too:

 

"We're looking to use the environment and to use local businesses and to develop key skills within the children which will make them employable, make them into entrepreneurs that can then bring prosperity to this area.

 

"We want skills that are relevant to this community so that children can be creative enough to live and make a living. It's a tricky area to prosper. We want to give children skills relevant to the area to allow them to do just that"
