Next wave of Free Schools approved.

Next wave of Free Schools approved.

Another 131 free schools have been approved to open in England, creating about 69,000 places.

They will include a non-selective school in Dartford opened by an academy trust with runs grammar schools.

All new state schools are now opened under the free school scheme - which can be run by academy trusts, parents or community organisations.
