New Faith Schools and new Grammar school places - DfE

New good school places in areas where they are needed most will give more children from all backgrounds the world-class education they deserve, under plans announced today (11 May 2018) by Education Secretary Damian Hinds.

The package of measures will create more school places, giving parents greater choice and raising education standards – including in disadvantaged areas. It will include:

  • a new wave of free school applications, building on the 212,000 places created by free schools since 2010
  • £50 million funding to expand the number of places at existing good or outstanding selective schools alongside measures to give more disadvantaged pupils the opportunity to attend these schools
  • new support for faith schools where there is demand for good school places
  • fresh agreement with the independent schools sector to help improve outcomes for pupils of all backgrounds
