New free schools

 Today the government announced that over 50 new free schools will open at the start of the new school term, giving parents and pupils a greater choice of good schools so we can level up opportunity across the country.

  • Every child should have access to a good education so they can reach their full potential, regardless of their background or where they live.
  • That is why, through the successful free schools programme, more than 50 new free schools will be able to open their gates to pupils this year, creating over 24,000 new, high-quality school places across the country and delivering greater choice and higher standards by bringing more diversity to the school system. 
  • Britain has already made significant advances in educational attainment after turning the ship around from the mess which the Conservative-led coalition inherited from  Labour - but there is still more to do. These new schools will contribute to raising standards across the country, giving students the world-class education they deserve as we build back better from the coronavirus pandemic.
