Seven pieces of real estate belonging to the MPS have been sold to the Education Funding Agency. These will facilitate the delivery of 6 primary Free Schools and 1 University Technical College. Together, the sale of these police stations should help create around 2,900 additional school places.

At present, no LFEPA properties have been sold for educational use.
