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.
