Parents interested in sending their child to a free school planned in the Penryn area are invited to attend an open meeting next month.

The event is also aimed at building links with members of the community, organisations and local businesses to work on the project.

A group of parents and early years specialists led by Laura Dancer of Mylor want to create a Christian designated school, although it will be open to other faiths.

The aim is to offer "an alternative educational approach" for primary-aged children.

Called Three16, after a Bible scripture, the long-term aim is to also offer secondary schooling.

An application has been made to the Department for Education and the group now needs to collect evidence of demand.

The first meeting is at Raze The Roof in Penryn on Tuesday February 12 at 6.30pm.

People can find out how they can get involved in setting up the school and parents can register their interest.
