Latest wave of 130 free schools given the go-ahead
SOME 69,000 places are to be created in biggest wave of new free school approvals this Parliament as the DfE gives the green light for 131 new schools.
These schools will be led by high-performing institutions, including a grammar-school-led multi-academy trust (MAT) and the largest state boarding school in the country.
Among the latest free school proposals to be approved is Stone Lodge Academy - a new secondary school in Dartford, proposed by Endeavour Multi Academy Trust, which already runs two successful grammar schools. Another is Sapientia Primary Prep School - proposed by The Sapientia Education Trust, which runs Wymondham College, the largest state boarding school in England. This school for 5- to 11-year-olds will provide 450 primary places in Norfolk.
Also given the go-ahead are School 21 Campus and School 21 Sugar House - two new schools from reception to sixth form in Newham, East London, creating over 2,400 places. The schools will be operated by the trust behind School 21, which has been rated outstanding by Ofsted.
