The McAuley Free School project opened in 2013 as The Boulevard Academy in Hull and received an outstanding Ofsted report in June 2015.

As with all free schools, this project received a project development grant to help the Trust cover costs in the run up to opening a free school (the pre-opening stage). The funding is designed to enable Trusts to cover everything they will need to buy up to the point at which the school opens. Post-opening funding expenditure was agreed to cover essential initial costs, such as buying books and equipment. Capital funding rates are published here

Since opening, The Boulevard Academy has received its school block allocation of revenue funding, in line with all other maintained schools and academies. Information on schools block allocations for the academic years since 2013/14 is published online at
