A school for creative arts aimed at children as young as four is to be set up in the U.K. by staff at Sir Paul McCartney's education academy. The former Beatles star helped to establish the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts in his hometown in 1996, and bosses at the organisation are now planning to open an arts-centred primary school. Children aged between four and nine will get to take classes in the arts alongside more traditional subjects such as maths and English. The school will open as part of a U.K. government scheme to set up more than 100 'free' schools run independently of state education.
