Plans for the permanent building of North Devon’s first free school will be unveiled at a consultation event next week.
Route 39 Academy, which opened for the first time in September having been given the go ahead by the Department of Education, is due to have a permanent premises at Steart Farm Touring Park in Bucks Cross.
The secondary school is currently based at the former Clovelly Primary School in Higher Clovelly.
The planning consultation will be the first time the public have seen what the permanent site, which still needs planning permission, could look like.
The event will be held on October 11 at the parish hall in Higher Clovelly between 9.30am and 11.30am, and between 2.30pm and 8pm.
Members of the public are invited to view the plans and provide comment and feedback.
The architects, Aedas, will also be present and will be holding meetings during the day with the students to get their feedback on the designs.
Governor Anna Ward commented, “We are delighted to be in a position to get the formal planning process underway and to have something tangible to show the community.
“The issues and ideas raised at the event will contribute to refining the designs. We want the school to be an asset to the local area.”
