Kent's Hadlow College puts forward free school plan
Plans to open a free school with a rural-focused curriculum have been put forward by a Kent agricultural college.
Hadlow College near Tonbridge said it wanted to open the Rural Community School in September 2013.
A spokesman said it wanted to develop an "outdoor classroom concept" with a more practical approach to learning.
Free schools are funded from the public education budget - but the schools are run independently and have the freedom to create their own curriculum.
The college is holding a public consultation into the proposal.
Parents can find out more at the Grange Moor Hotel in Maidstone at 19:00 GMT on Thursday.
Further meetings are planned for the Langley Hotel in Tonbridge on Tuesday and the Kings Hill Community Centre in West Malling on Wednesday.
