We are highly delighted to announce that the Department for Education has confirmed that CAPA College will open as a DFE-funded Free School in September 2018.  Applications for students wishing to apply to CAPA College will open today. CAPA College, as part of the Enhance Academy Trust, will have its own permanent purpose-built home in the heart of Wakefield. However, from September 2018, during the development of the new premises, CAPA College will temporarily be based in the Performing Arts facilities at Cathedral Academy, Wakefield.  An announcement from the ESFA with details of the new site for CAPA College’s permanent home will be made in the forthcoming weeks.

Overwhelming support

“It is a real honour and achievement to be announcing today the confirmation of the exciting future of CAPA College as a Free School. It is testament to the passion, dedication, tenacity and hard-work of the team behind the bid and the outstanding provision developed at CAPA over the past few years. Credit and our utmost appreciation also needs to be given to all the many, many stakeholders who have provided such support and commitment leading up to today’s exciting announcement.” Claire Nicholson, Principal"

Since its formation in 2006, CAPA has developed a regional and national reputation as a centre of excellence in the Arts with consistently ‘Outstanding’ judgements from Ofsted, excellent exam results, exceptional student progression routes and critically acclaimed, award-winning performances.  The exciting announcement that CAPA College will now open as a Free School will enable CAPA’s outstanding legacy to develop and expand allowing even more talented, creative young people from across Yorkshire and the North of England to gain access to the highest quality of Arts training and education.
