Free Schools are all-ability state-funded schools set up in response to what local people say they want and need in order to improve education for children in their community.
The right school can transform a child’s life and help them achieve things they may never have imagined. Through the Free Schools programme it is now much easier for talented and committed teachers, charities, parents and education experts to open schools to address real demand within an area.
